Three Lebanese men charged with firing rockets into Israel
Three people were charged on Monday with firing rockets from Lebanon against Israel on August 22, reported the National News Agency.
State Commissioner to the Military Court Judge Saqr Saqr charged Lebanese national Youssef Mohammed al-Fleity and Omar Abdul Mawla al-Atrash and a fugitive with firing the rockets from southern Lebanon against Israel.
The Lebanese suspects were arrested on Saturday and confessed to transporting rockets from the Gaza region in the Bekaa to individuals in the southern region of Tyre.
The rockets were since fired from al-Hawsh-Tyre region towards Israel on August 22.
Four Katyusha rockets were fired in the incident and Israel's Channel 2 said one landed in the town of Nahariya.
The Israeli army said its Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted one of "three or four rockets fired from south of Tyre."
The other rockets did not land in Israeli territory.
The attack prompted Israeli warplanes the next day to strike a Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFLP-GC) base in a valley in Naameh that lies 16 kilometers south of Beirut. The strike did not cause any casualties or material damage.
The PFLP-GC denied it was involved in the rocket attack.
