To Katusja-raketter slo ned utenfor Kiryat Shmona i Nord-Israel søndag. De kom fra Libanon. Israelerne spør seg om det er forsøk på å utløse en ny krig.
Hizbollah benekter at det er de som skjøt rakettene. Og de arabiske sendingene i israelsk TV 2 sier det var en palestinsk utbrytergruppe, men hvordan de kan vite det sies ikke.
Two Katyusha rockets fell on northern Israel Sunday, the first fired from Lebanon since last summer’s inconclusive war with Hezbollah guerrillas. No one was hurt, but there was some damage, police and the military said.
Hezbollah denied firing the rockets in a broadcast on the militant group’s Al-Manar television.
The attack raised the possibility of Israeli reprisal and a new flareup between the two countries. It came as Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was arriving in the United States for talks.
«Israel will not succumb to this provocation but will monitor the situation carefully,» said an official with Olmert, indicating that Israel would not hit back. The official requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation.
Det skytes fortsatt Qassam-raketter inn i Negev-ørkenen i Sør-Israel. Tegn til en koordinert beskytning vil gjøre israelerne nervøse.
