Northern Israel Hit by Rockets from Lebanon

Four Katyusha rockets landed in northwestern Israel Monday night. No injuries were reported, but the explosions caused damage to a number of physical structures. Firefighters spent hours containing a fire that was triggered when a gas tank was struck by one of the rockets. The Israeli army responded by directing artillery fire toward the origins of the missiles. Although Hizbullah controls the area from where the rockets were launched, many doubt that its leader, Sheikh Na’srallah, is prepared to provoke Israel into major conflict at this time and are instead suggesting that a minor faction aligned with global jihad fired the Katyushas. In any case, Israel’s official position is that it holds the government of Lebanon responsible for the attack. Officials did not sound air raid sirens, nor did they order residents into the bomb shelters.
