The incident came 4 days after 4 rockets were fired from the Qlayleh area of South Lebanon, heightening tensions at the southern Lebanese border amid violent exchanges of fire between Israeli forces and Palestinian armed groups in Palestinian territories.
On Tuesday, an un-launched, locally-manufactured 122-mm Grad rocket was found in the same site from which the rockets were fired the night before, in Aarqoub, according to Al-Jadeed.
Security forces proceeded to work on neutralizing the rocket’s threat by either disarming or detonating it.
