Hezzbullah plot to fire Katyusha rockets at Israel from Lebanon foiled by Hezbullah?One or both may have been Hezbullah.
Two katyusha rockets aimed at Israel and set to launch were discovered Monday in the southern region of Mazraat Halta, near the occupied Kfar Shuba Hills, a security source told The Daily Star.
The source said the rockets were defused by security forces.
According to the source, attempts to launch rockets from Lebanon to Israel occur every time there is an aggression against Gaza.
Launching rockets from Lebanon to Israel is usually done as a message of solidarity with Gaza, the source said.
Security sources told The Daily Star the rockets could reach 7 kilometers into Israel if launched in full power.
The sources said that the two rockets were placed 4 kilometers away from the Lebanese-Israeli borders.
