A member of Al-Jamaa Al-Islamiya fired rockets at Israel Friday, sources from the group told The Daily Star, adding that Hussein Izzat Atwe acted of his own volition.The source highlighted that while Atwe did not refer to Al-Jamaa's top command, the Islamist group considered Friday morning's firing of rockets on Israel "an honorable act of resistance".Lebanese security sources told The Daily Star that Lebanese Army Intelligence had found traces of six rockets in the village of Mari in Hasbaya, some 2 kilometers from the Blue Line, the United Nations-demarcated border line between Lebanon and Israel.The sources confirmed that three rockets, with a range of 10 kilometers, had been fired toward Israel from the Mari area near the village of Majidieh between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m. Only one projectile was reported to have hit Israel, according to the Israeli army.
