Katyusha Rockets Discovered

Download PDF for this date

Four Katyusha rockets mounted on improvised launchers were discovered this morning by an Israeli army patrol near the Lebanese border, directed toward the nearby settlement of Admith. They were dismantled before any damage could take place. An investigation revealed that the border fence was cut through where the terrorists penetrated into Israel. This was the first serious incident of this kind along the Lebanese border in months. It occurred just 24 hours after Arab terrorists acting along the Syrian border attacked an Israeli patrol with bazooka shells.
