Israel Fires Back on Southern Lebanon!
Palestinian militants are suspected of firing three Katyusha rockets into Israel today.
Israel just retaliated!
Ya Libnan reports:
Israel retaliated to the three rockets fired by unidentified militants from South Lebanon by firing five shells into Lebanese territory. Palestinian militants are suspected of instigating the attacks.
The shelling came moments after two rockets slammed into northern Israel from Lebanon without causing any casualties, in the first such fire since last summer’s conflict with Hezbollah.
Israeli troops fired five shells at south Lebanon while the army was searching for the guerrillas who fired rockets on northern Israel, Lebanese security forces said.
Five shells slammed on the mountainous areas of Birkat Naqqar and Jabal Saddaneh near the town of Shebaa in the eastern sector of the border with Israel, they said. There were no reports of casualties.
Three Katyusha rockets exploded near the northern Israeli border town of Kiryat Shmona. There were no casualties, but roads and vehicles were damaged. Lebanese troops carried out patrols and erected checkpoints in search of a civilian vehicle from where the rockets were apparently fired into northern Israel, they said.
The UN forces say the attacks on Israel are a breach of the cease-fire. -No kidding.
Meanwhile, the Lebanese army prevented terrorists from firing another rocket into Israel today.
Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora said his country would find those responsible for the Katyusha rocket attacks on Kiryat Shmona.
Hezbollah denied firing the rockets.
