Updated at 6:30pm: Four rockets were fired from south Lebanon into Occupied Palestine on Thursday, the Lebanese National News Agency reported.

The Israeli army told AFP that the Iron Dome defense system had intercepted one of four rockets fired into northern Occupied Palestine.

"One rocket was intercepted by Iron Dome," an army spokeswoman told AFP, without specifying its location or giving any details about the other rockets.

Eli Bean, director of the Israeli Magen David Adom ambulance service, said no one had been hurt.

"There are no casualties. There are no indications or reports of anything hitting any populated area," he said on Army Radio.

"The [Israeli Occupation Force] is regarding this as a one-time incident. There is no change in regulations or orders," Israeli army chief spokesman Yoav Mordechai told Israel's Channel 2 television.

According to the NNA, the rockets were launched near the southern Lebanese city of Tyre. An NNA correspondent in the region said media reports that Israeli forces had fired into Lebanon were false
