The Lebanese Armed Forces found four ready-to-fire Katyusha rockets in southeast Lebanon on Monday, Lebanese newspaper The Daily Star reported.

According to the report, the rockets were discovered by military intelligence on the outskirts of the village of Majidieh in Hasbaya.

Earlier this month, four rockets fired from Lebanon landed in northern Israel. No one was hurt but the rockets caused extensive damage to a chicken coop and a propane gas tank, which went up in flames. IDF artillery responded by pounding the launch sites.

Last week, one person was injured in southern Lebanon when a rocket apparently fired towards Israel hit a Lebanese border village, security sources in Lebanon said. They said the rocket was fired from the Wadi al-Qaisiyeh area, about 2 km (one mile) from the frontier and landed in the village of Houla inside Lebanon.
