Two rockets were fired from south Lebanon towards northern Israel Friday, Lebanon's state-owned National News Agency said.

It said the rockets were launched from the Hasbaya region at 6:30 a.m. (0330 GMT), few hours after a failed attempt to fire a rocket from another area of south Lebanon, The Daily Star reported.

The Israeli army said a projectile fired from Lebanon struck northern Israel early Friday causing no harm or damages.

"One projectile hit an open space near Kfar Yuval, between [northern Israeli towns] Metula and Kiryat Shmona," a military spokeswoman told AFP, adding the army did not yet know whether it was a mortar shell or a rocket.

The rockets were fired as Isreal pressed ahead for a fourth day with an offensive against the Gaza Strip.
