Lebanese security officials said on Wednesday the military has found four rockets in southern Lebanon near the border with Israel. They 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 find comes five days after two rockets were fired from southern Lebanon toward northern Israel, triggering an Israeli artillery retaliation. That was the third such cross-border exchange this year. No one claimed responsibility for firing the earlier rockets from Lebanon. The Hezbullah, which battled Israel in the summer of 2006, has denied involvement.
