The Palestinian group Hamas had no role in a rocket attack on Israel from Lebanon and had nothing to do with a statement in the name of its armed wing that claimed responsibility for the salvo late on Saturday, Hamas officials in Lebanon said. Three rockets fired from Lebanon hit open areas near Nahariya in northern Israel on Saturday evening. Israel responded with artillery fire. The attack followed a similar rocket attack from Lebanon on Friday.
