Several Katyusha rockets which were launched from southern Lebanon landed in Israel overnight, prompting the Israeli army to warn Beirut early Tuesday to prevent similar incidents in the future. The rockets, which landed in the western Galilee region, caused no casualties, the army said in a statement.
But, according to AFP, it warned: "The Israeli army considers that it is a serious incident and believes that it is the responsibility of the Lebanese government and the Lebanese army to avoid this kind of attacks."
After the rocket fire, the Israeli army retaliated, by firing towards southern Lebanon. Israeli public radio reported that four rockets had landed in Israel -- one caused minor damage. Another landed in a populated area but failed to explode.
A Lebanese security official said loud explosions were heard overnight in Lebanon's southern Bint Jbeil area.
