Report: Israel warns Lebanon over rocket firing
Israel has warned Lebanon it will retaliate with aerial bombardment against southern Lebanon targets next time the Jewish state is attacked by rockets from Lebanon. According to A Nahar newspaper on Thursday, Israel's threat was conveyed to Beirut via international sides upon the firing of three Katyushas early Wednesday into northern Israel.
Israel retaliated to the attack by shelling southern Lebanon with four rockets.
The daily As-Safir said it had learned that Israel informed UNIFIL that it had intended to hit back at the source from which the rockets were fired with aerial bombardment, but that it had changed its mind upon international advice.
Wednesday's attack was the second such attack in less than a week.
