SIDON, Lebanon: Army troops Monday discovered the platform used to launch Sunday night’s rockets from south Lebanon into Israel and opened an investigation to search for the perpetrators, an Army statement said.
"After an inspection operation it had carried out, an Army unit discovered this morning the two launch pads ... and the investigations continue in coordination with the United Nations Interim Forces in Lebanon to detect the wrongdoers and arrest them," the statement read.
Two rockets fired from south Lebanon struck northern Israel Sunday night, triggering Israeli retaliatory artillery fire on the outskirts of the Lebanese village of Rashidieh, Lebanese security sources said. No casualties were reported.
Earlier Sunday, UNIFIL had urged the Lebanese and Israeli militaries to exercise “maximum self-restraint” and cooperate with them to maintain calm on the borders.
Three rockets had also been fired from the same area Saturday, following three other rockets that were fired Friday toward Israel from the village of Mari in Hasbaya.
