Katyusha Rockets Strike Galilee

Download PDF for this date

Three Katyusha rockets exploded in the Upper Galilee panhandle early Thursday morning, causing no casualties and only slight damage.

The rockets were fired from southern Lebanon, outside the Israeli-controlled border security zone. Israeli artillery later opened fire on the apparent launching sites.

One rocket hit a garden in an Israeli border town, shattering windows and downing some power lines.

The other two were identified only after search parties discovered their impact craters in a field near the border fence.
