    Lebanon: Israel’s Shadow War with Iran

    Rocket alert sirens sounded Friday in a number of towns in the Golan Heights and Galilee Panhandle, sending residents scrambling to shelters.

    The alarms sounded shortly before 11 a.m. in Ein Quiniyye, Neveh Ativ and Snir, near Israel’s northern border with Lebanon and Syria.

    The military said it was looking into the matter and had yet to confirm whether projectiles were launched toward Israel.

    There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage. The Magen David Adom ambulance service said it was not aware of any injuries.

    Residents in the area reported hearing a number explosions.

    Video footage showed interceptor missiles from Israeli air defense systems that were apparently activated.

    On Wednesday, three rockets were fired into northern Israel from Lebanon. Two rockets hit open areas, while the third fell short of the border.

    In response, the Israel Defense Forces fired artillery shells at targets in Lebanon just after the attack. Some two hours later it followed up with a second and a third round before conducting airstrikes toward “terror infrastructure” and rocket launching sites, according to the military.

    The Climate Crisis and Responsible Journalism

    As The Times of Israel’s environment reporter, I try to convey the facts and science behind climate change and environmental degradation, to explain – and critique – the official policies affecting our future, and to describe Israeli technologies that can form part of the solution.

    I am passionate about the natural world and disheartened by the dismal lack of awareness to environmental issues shown by most of the public and politicians in Israel.

    I’m proud to be doing my part to keep Times of Israel readers properly informed about this vital subject – which can and does effect policy change.
