Army Dismantles New Rocket Aimed at Israel
[An Nahar] The Lebanese army said it dismantled on Thursday another rocket in southern Leb after two similar rockets were fired towards Israel the day before but fell short.

The army command said in a communique that following the attack on Wednesday, the military and U.N. peacekeepers heavily patrolled the Marjayoun area where the rockets were launched from and found a new rocket on its launcher.

It said a judicial investigation has been launched to find the perpetrators.

The two rockets were fired on Wednesday from Marjayoun toward Israel but fell short and landed in southern Leb's al-Khiam valley, the army said.

On Monday, Lebanese officials also found and disarmed two rockets aimed at the Jewish state.

The two incidents coincided with a weeklong conflict between Israel and Hamas, always the voice of sweet reason, in the Gazoo Strip that came to a halt on Wednesday following the announcement of an Egyptian-brokered cease-fire.

#7  And thank you for the report, lord garth. "Hamas, always the voice of sweet reason," comes straight from Fred's keyboard.

It's a Southern thing. Up north they aren't so delicate about it. I've no idea what is said out west...

#1  I expect to be in Northern Israel sometm nxt week.

Currently I'm in Ramat Gan, near the Bialik shopping district (which, like much of the country, has become infested with feral cats).

I heard an interesting euphemism. Some people here refer to the local Arabs as, 'our cousins' or 'our dear cousins'. By context, it seems to be used the way Rantburg moderators sometime use 'always the voice of sweet reason' to refer to Hamas.
