Breaking: 5 Katyusha rockets found in Lebanon

Israel Radio just reported that the UNIFIL troops found five Katyusha rockets in a wooded area outside of Naquora in southern Lebanon. The rockets were not ready for firing but were inside a box. Here's more from Lebanon.
U.N. peacekeepers on Wednesday found five Katyusha rockets in Wadi Hamoul near the Lebanese border town of Naqoura.
A security source told the Voice of Lebanon radio station that the projectiles – which were still usable -- were not set to be fired into Israel.

Spokeswoman for the U.N. Interim Force in Lebanon Yasmine Bouzianne said a UNIFIL patrol found the rockets around 5pm.

She said a rocket launcher was also found in the vicinity.

Bouzianne said UNIFIL troops immediately cordoned off the area and contacted the southern command of the Lebanese army.

The Lebanese Army and Hezbollah are one and the same! Tell me the UN is kidding, right? What a bunch of maroons!
