Hezbollah said on Saturday that it was not behind a rocket attack on northern Israel that sparked a retaliatory volley of shells from the Jewish state.

"Hezbollah has nothing to do with this attack," the militant party's spokesman Ibrahim Mussawi told AFP.

His comments came after two rockets were launched early on Saturday from southern Lebanon into northern Israel, and the Israeli military responded with artillery.

Israeli public radio said one woman was lightly injured by flying glass in her home when a rocket hit near the Israeli town of Maalot close to the border.
