While tensions in the region remained high due to the Syrian civil war, residents of Metula in northern Israel said they heard a blast late Sunday night that reportedly came from a rocket fired from Lebanon.

The rocket was launched at Israel from the area of Marjayoun, a Lebanese town situated about six miles from the Israeli border, the Hezbollah-affiliated Al-Mayadeen media network reported.

The IDF is investigating the reports.

In Lebanon on Sunday, a pair of rockets hit a car dealership and a residential building in Hezbollah strongholds in south Beirut.
