Lebanon believes that Israel organized the firing of rockets from southern Lebanese territory into the Jewish state in efforts to "undermine security and stability" in Lebanon, Lebanese English newspaper the Daily Star reported Tuesday.

Lebanese Defense Minister Fayez Ghosn told the Star that "The party that has launched mysterious rockets from the south is known," allegedly insinuating Israel.

"Lebanon's enemies, namely Israel, have no interest in the continuation of calm and stability in the south," the Lebanese defense minister said.

Four Katyusha rockets were fired at Israel from Lebanon earlier this month in an incident that sparked tensions between Beirut and Jerusalem. The IDF retaliated shortly after the attacks by bombing sites in southern Lebanon, and area largely in control by Hezbollah.
