A rocket has been fired from the Lebanese town of Marjayoun in the direction of a northern Israeli settlement.

The rocket launch could be heard from an area about 10 kilometers from the Israeli border, Lebanese residents and security sources said. It was not clear where the rocket landed and there were no immediate reports of damage and casualties, Reuters reports.

An Israeli drone is hovering over the area from which the rocket was allegedly fired, Lebanese media reports.

The head of the northern Israeli town of Metula Regional Council, Herzl Boker, told Maariv newspaper that residents heard an explosion to the south of Metula.

This is my opinion. It maybe that the Syrian Rebels are trying to draw Israel into a conflict with Hezbullah to try and distract them from working with the Pro Assad Syrian Army. If that is the case and Israel take the bait then they may launch a airstrike on Lebanon then if there is retaliation then the whole of the Middle east will explode!

Hmmm, I'm thinking mossad did another launch from within lebanon.
By deception thou shalt wage war and all.
I wish all of those muslims would unite and end their only common problem.

OP, your opinion is silly at best, israelis for Assad.
LOL, who along with the US started that civil war??

Israel won't take the bait. They know most the people in the world would love nothing better than to see them disappear off the map for eternity. They will sit and wait and keep taking hits until their back is up against a wall and the only option left is to launch nukes.

What Israel are you talking about?
The same Israel that launched strikes into Syria? The same Israel that attacked an aid ship on international waters?

It may have something to do with this

Iran persuaded Syrian President Bashar Assad to allow Hezbollah to open a new front from which to attack Israel in the Golan Heights, Israel Radio reported Wednesday citing a report by the pan-Arab newspaper Al-Hayat.


Just a thought

Another Fairy Tale from the J-Post.

They do like to talk a lot about attacks from Hezbollah, but where is the evidence of any of this? Of course it doesn't exist, but looks good for western consumption by the bible thumping Israel-firsters and owned media.

Hezbollah does not attack Israel. It is there to stand against Israeli aggression and to stop them taking more land, of course though that makes them terrorists in the eyes of Israel and it's western puppets. I mean, how dare they defend their land against poor little Israel, who just wanst to be friends!

On 31 March 1995, a rocket attack on Nahariyya in Western Galilee kills an 18 year old teenager. April 9, 1996, A heavy rocket barrage, launched by Hezbollah upon the cities of Galilee caused the initiation of the Operation Grapes of Wrath by the IDF.


I'm not saying Israel is full of little angles

But having personally been on the receiving end of Hezbollah attacks. I can assure you they do indeed attack Israel.

Just saying

Text Report: Missile from Lebanon hits northern Israel

Monday, May 27, 2013 |  Israel Today Staff 

Lebanese pro-democracy activist seeks asylum in SwedenIsraeli army remembers abducted soldiersThe UN is only effective when all is quiet


Lebanon Lebanese media reported that a missile presumably fired by the Hezbollah terrorist militia landed in northern Israel late Sunday night. That report was backed up by resident of the Israeli border town of Metula, who spoke of a high-pitched whistle followed by a loud explosion.Israeli and Lebanese forces were searching for evidence of the missile strike, but by mid-morning Monday no confirmation had been provided.Hezbollah's Al-Manar TV later claimed responsibility for the purported missile strike, stating that it had attacked a "settlement" in northern Israel.The incident came just hours after a Hezbollah stronghold in Beirut was shelled, injuring four of the terror group's members.It is believed that attack was carried out by Syrian rebel forces angered by Hezbollah's involvement in their nation's ongoing civil war. An estimated 5,000 Hezbollah troops are in Syria fighting on the side of embattled dictator Bashar Assad.There is also the possibility that Sunday's cross-border missile attack was the start of Hezbollah reprisals for recent Israeli air strikes against the transfer of Syrian weapons to the Lebanese group." target="_blank" class="postlink">http://w This is what I am reading about the rocket attack. But this is an Israeli source, it may or may not be accurate.
