The Lebanese military on Wednesday found four rockets in southern Lebanon near the border with Israel, Lebanese security officials said. The officials said the rockets were discovered in Ein al-Jawz in the southeast - a region facing the Golan Heights. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak to the media. The discovery comes five days after two Katyusha rockets were fired from southern Lebanon toward northern Israel, one of which wounded five people near a home in the Western Galilee. The IDF responded immediately to that attack by firing artillery rounds at the source of the fire in southern Lebanon. No one claimed responsibility for the rocket-fire, in what was the third such cross-border exchange this year. On Monday night, Israel filed a complaint to the United Nations Security Council following the attack, saying said it held the Lebanese government responsible.
