Everything That Happened After The Rocket Attack From South Lebanon Last Night

LebArmy | telesurenglish

After four rockets were fired from Lebanon towards Israel last night, the Lebanese Army announced on its Twitter account that it found more rockets in South Lebanon.

According to the post, the rockets were located on Thursday evening in the vicinity of Rashidieh Palestinian refugee camp in Tyre.

A senior correspondent at Alaraby TV, Joyce El Hajj, said that the survey of the rockets showed that they would have been launched towards Israel.

Last night, the rockets were fired towards occupied Palestinian territories from the Qlayleh area north of Naqoura but landed in the sea, according to the Israeli army.

Hezbollah denied its connection with the rockets and a Palestinian official claimed confirmed that Palestinians were behind the rocket that was launched.

The Lebanese Army said it was chasing suspects to deescalate tensions between Lebanon and Israel. Jordan had done so by stopping protesters to cross the border from its side.

For its part, the Israeli army said it would not respond to the attack from Lebanon.

Commenting about the rocket launches from Lebanon, the UNIFIL Spokesperson said, “The UNIFIL Head of Mission and Force Commander Major General Stefano Del Col is in contact with the parties to urge them to exercise maximum restraint and cooperate with UNIFIL in order to prevent further escalation.”
