Israel has fired 20 artillery shells into Lebanon in response to two rockets that were launched in the opposite direction.

The Lebanese rockets landed in a field near the town of Kiryat Shmona, the Israeli military said in a statement, causing no injuries or damage.

Israel responded with artillery fire, with witnesses in southern Lebanon reporting more than 20 shells hitting two towns.

There were no immediate reports of casualties.

Interesting that they did not use their new weapon "David's Sling"  or "Iron Dome"at the Lebanese rockets

Wild speculation based purely on the twitter reports, so grain of salt:

The rockets hit an isolated area and did no damage. Why waste David's Sling when you can send a stronger message by shelling a couple of towns?
