Rockets fired from Lebanon hit northern Israel, but it's not quite clear who fired them. Lebanon's prime minister is condemning the attacks and Hezbollah is not stepping up to claim responsibility.

Natalia Antelava is covering this story from Beirut for our partners the BBC she joins us now to talk about the simmering tensions in the region.
