Lebanese army dismantles 4 rockets near Israel

Lebanese army dismantles 4 rockets near Israel

A senior Lebanese army official says troops have found and dismantled four rockets near the border with Israel, a day after a rocket hit the Jewish state.
The attack Tuesday drew a rapid response from Israeli artillery in a brief flare-up across the tense border that caused no casualties.
The Lebanese official says the rockets were discovered Wednesday, placed in a building under construction in the Houla area from where Tuesday's rocket was launched.
He says three of the four Katyusha rockets found were ready to be fired. He spoke on condition of anonymity in line with military regulations.
The Lebanon-Israel border has been largely quiet since Israel and the militant Hezbollah group fought a bitter war in 2006.
