Rocket attack from Lebanon leaves Israel on edge.

Early Tuesday morning, at least 50 rockets were fired from Lebanon into the Golan Heights region of Israel. While there were no injuries reported, the attack did result in multiple fires in the area.

According to reports from the Times of Israel, the Israeli military confirmed its air defenses intercepted several rockets, while others landed in open terrain.

The rocket fire caused several fires in northern Israel.

Firefighters were actively working to control the flames in various locations, including Had Ness in the Golan Heights and Kibbutz Ayelet HaShahar in the Upper Galilee. A representative of the Golan-Galilee branch of the Fire and Rescue Service confirmed the outbreaks.

The attack was claimed by Hezbollah, which stated that it launched dozens of Katyusha rockets at an army base in the Golan Heights.

This action was described as "retaliation" for an Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) strike in northeastern Lebanon the previous night.

The escalation follows an IDF operation on the night of June 11. The IDF targeted a facility in Baalbek, southern Lebanon, which was reportedly used by a Hezbollah unit to strengthen its logistical base.
