Rocket Launcher Found in Rashaya al-Fakhar

A rocket platform was found on Saturday in olive fields west of the southern region of Rashaya al-Fakhar, the state-run National News Agency reported.

NNA said that the Lebanese Army found the launchpad that was used on Tuesday evening to fire a rocket from the southern region of Rashaya al-Fakhar towards Israel but it fell short and landed in Lebanese territory.

No Israeli response was recorded then, but flares were fired over the Kfarshouba Hills amid heavy overflights by surveillance drones.

On Wednesday, two rocket launchpads were found in the southern city of Tyre.

The rocket attacks from the South started amid an Israeli assault on Gaza, which entered Saturday its twelfth day, leaving hundreds of Palestinians dead and wounded.
