United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Friday condemned the firing of rockets from southern Lebanon toward the northern village of Shlomi. "If the rockets were launched from Lebanese territory as is likely, the incident would constitute a serious violation of UNSC Resolution 1701. UNIFIL is continuing its investigation to determine the launch site," Ban said in a statement issued in New York. Palestinian terror groups affiliated with al-Qaida are the prime suspects in the firing of two Katyusha rockets into the northern neighborhood early Tuesday morning. Also Friday, Israel spoke out against the conclusions drawn by the UN force in southern Lebanon, UNIFIL, that said it was unable to prove the attack emanated from Lebanon. The statement also criticized a roadside bombing which wounded two UNIFIL soldiers on Tuesday. Meanwhile, the United Nations Security Council condemned the rocket attack, according to Army Radio.
