Rocket fired at northern Israel from Lebanon
( dpa ) - Suspected Hezbollah guerillas fired a 122- millimetre, Russian-made Katyusha rocket into northern Israel overnight, in the first such attack in many months, Israeli police said Tuesday.
The rocket left a mark on the ground, but caused no injuries, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.
He could not comment on Israeli media reports that the rocket struck the northern Israeli town of Shlomi, on the border with Lebanon.
Hezbollah launched nearly 4,000 Katyusha rockets at northern Israel during 33 days of combat in the summer of 2006, but the Lebanese radical Shiite movement stopped after a ceasefire took effect on August 14 of that year.
