Two Rockets Fired from South at Israel, at Least One Lands in Lebanon

Two rockets were fired from south Lebanon towards the Israeli border on Wednesday evening, a Lebanese security official told Agence France Press.

"Two rockets were fired, one fell in what was clearly Lebanese territory, the other went towards Israel," the official said on condition of anonymity. It was not immediately clear where the second rocket fell.

In Israel, an army spokeswoman said: "There are no rockets on Israeli territory."

The Lebanese National News Agency reported that both rockets landed in Lebanon, in Ebel al-Kameh and al-Hamames villages near al-Wazzani river, a hundred meters away from the Israeli border.

Inhabitants of the region said they heard one rocket being fired from the Khiyam plain, while the second's source remains unknown.

In the meantime, the army and the UNIFIL have deployed their units in the region where these rockets landed.

This comes after two rockets ready to be fired against Israel were discovered in southern Lebanon on Monday.

The Army Command said the two 107mm Grad rockets were found between the towns of Halta and al-Mari in the Hasbaya district.
