Israeli jets intensify flights over Lebanon

Israeli warplanes have been carrying out intensive overflights over southwestern Lebanon, following a brief missile attack near the border.

The overflights followed rocket four attacks on northern Israel, which Te Aviv responded by launching five missiles at southern Lebanon on Thursday morning.

The Lebanese army has started a comprehensive search in the area where the Katyusha rockets were fired from, while the UN peacekeeping force in Lebanon, UNIFIL, intensified patrols in the south.

Schools in southern Lebanese towns bordering Israel were closed on Thursday out of fear of aerial Israeli attacks.

Four rockets were launched from southern Lebanon on northern Israeli towns of Nahariya and Galeli, wounding four Israelis, Press TV's Beirut correspondent, Ali Rizk, reported.

Following the firing, the Israeli army fired five rockets on Hamra, al- Jiben, and Tayr Harfa tow
