Hundreds of policemen will comb the North over the next week, searching for rockets and mortar pieces fired by the Hizbullah during the fighting. Northern District Cmdr. Dan Ronen told Army Radio on Thursday morning that the police had yet to find the locations of some 2,000 rockets that had landed in Israeli territory. Ronen said that during searches around Ya'ara on Wednesday, a dud mortar shell was located; had it exploded, it would have caused a disaster, he noted. Many citizens were calling in, reporting suspicious objects they had found after returning to their homes in the North.
