Israel on Thursday announced that it had been subjected to the largest attack from Lebanon since the Gaza conflict escalated early last month.

About 50 projectiles were fired at the towns of Upper Galilee, which is the largest bombardment in northern Israel, according to the Israeli Army Radio.

Sirens sounded in Israeli towns adjacent to the Lebanese border, and direct hits were detected in homes in the Manara area, without casualties, according to the radio.

It also reported that "two anti-tank missiles were fired at a lighting pole in (the area of) Galilee Panhandle. There were no casualties, but damage occurred."

Meanwhile, Lebanese Hezbollah said it targeted two infantry gatherings of Israeli soldiers in northern Israel.

The group said the targeted gatherings were in Dhayra and Jal al-Alam areas.

Hezbollah also said it targeted the Ein Zeitim Israeli military base with 48 Katyusha rockets in Israel’s northern city of Safed.
