Israel fires missile defenses near Lebanon after misidentification

JERUSALEM (Reuters) -Israel activated its missile defenses on Thursday after mistakenly identifying a threat near the border with Lebanon, the Israeli military said.

The incident also set off air raid sirens in parts of northern Israel.

“Due to a misidentification, the air defense soldiers launched interceptors and as a result an alert was activated,” the military said.
