Israel on Thursday accused the Lebanese government of shooting four rockets earlier in the day.
Israel’s IDFSpokesperson Twitter account wrote: “The Lebanese government is responsible for the attack.” IDF stands for Israeli Defense Forces, the country’s military.

The other rockets “fell outside” of Israel’s territory, the account added.
