UNIFIL, Lebanese Army searching for firing point

There is still no official word from Hezbollah on the rockets shot at Israel. Just as Israel did not take responsibility for the reported strike on Samir Kuntar, Hezbollah may also seek to distance itself from any reprisal campaign, as both sides seek to keep a lid on spiraling tensions.

Hezbollah is also not the only group capable of shooting rockets at Israel. In July 2014, a Palestinian group linked to Hamas fired a volley of rockets at Israel from the same area near Tyre, as the country battled Gazan fighters in the south.

In Lebanon, troops with UNIFIL and the Lebanese Army are searching for the firing point, a Lebanese source tells AFP.

The source says that “two Katyusha rockets were fired from a Lebanese village five kilometers [three miles] from the border with Israel.”
