Three Katyusha rockets were fired in two separate incidents Saturday and Sunday into the Galilee panhandle from south Lebanon. There were no casualties, but some damage as one of the rockets landed in a field and started a brush fire. Three Katyusha rockets have landed in the Galilee since the Israel Defense Force withdrew from Lebanon earlier this year. Katyushas aimed toward Israel have been discovered by the Israel-backed South Lebanon Army (SLA) inside the security zone in south Lebanon. SLA soldiers dismantled them before they were used. Meanwhile, police bomb squad units dismantled last Friday morning two explosive charges near Ashkelon before they caused any damage.
