Israel fires shells at southern Lebanon
Lebanese security officials say the Israeli army has fired eight shells at southern Lebanon after rockets were fired into northern Israel.

This is the second such cross-border exchange since Israel launched an offensive in Gaza on its southern flank on Dec. 27, and it threatens to ignite a second front in the north.

Several rockets fired from Lebanon hit northern Israel on Wednesday, emergency services said, in the second such attack since Israeli forces launched their Gaza offensive.

A fire brigade spokesman in northern Israel told Channel Two television there were no immediate reports of casualties. Witnesses in south Lebanon said they heard at least three explosions in the border area.
