     Israel's Gaza offensive has raised
    tensions in the region

    Al Jazeera's Rula Amin, reporting from Beirut, said people on the ground in Kiryat Shmona heard three explosions.

    She pointed out that the rocket attack was not the first on Israel from Lebanon.

    Less than a week ago, a similar attack took place when a couple of rockets also fired from southern Lebanon hit Israel.

    There was no immediate claim of responsiblity, and Hezbollah denied any involvement.

    Israel and the Hezbollah fought a 34-day war in 2006, after fighters from the Lebanese Shia movement seized two Israeli soldiers.

    Wednesday's attack occured on the 19th day of the Israeli offensive in Gaza that has left almost 1,000 Palestinian dead.
