Israeli artillery shelled the town of al-Bataysha in southern Lebanon late Saturday following a similar rocket attack.

Last month, unidentified people fired eight rockets at Israel from southern Lebanon, prompting Israeli retaliatory attacks.

Tension has been high in the region over a deadly Israeli offensive against the blockaded the Gaza Strip, which killed at least 2133 Palestinians, mostly civilians, have been killed and 10,895 others injured since July 7.

Over the same period, at least 68 Israelis – 64 soldiers and four civilians – have been killed, according to Israeli figures.
