GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Lebanese security officials say at least three rockets were fired from southern Lebanon toward Israel. The attack on Thursday evening threatened to open a new front in the escalating fighting between Israel and the militant Palestinian Hamas group in Gaza. It was unclear who was responsible for the attack or where the rockets landed. The rockets were launched from the Qlayleh area north of Naqoura, near the border with Israel. South Lebanon is home to Palestinian militant factions as well as the powerful Shiite Hezbollah group.
