Lebanese President Michel Suleiman on Thursday put the blame on Israel regarding the Katyusha attack on northern Israel on Tuesday night. According to him, an "Israeli agent" was responsible for the action. "This work is a pretext for Israel to continue to violate Lebanese sovereignty, and a swift interpretation of what it had said about an expansion of intelligence activity in Lebanon because of Hizbullah's presence," Suleiman conveyed.


Meanwhile, according to the Lebanese investigation, the Katyusha fired from southern Lebanon appeared to have been launched from the balcony of Houla's Municipality chief Eng. Faisal Hijazi. According to Al-Hayat, citing security sources, Lebanese soldiers and UNIFIL forces found a rocket launcher on the balcony of Hijazi's house in Houla. They said Hijazi left home at 4:30pm and headed to Bir el-Salassil in Bint Jbeil where he resides.
