The Lebanese army on Friday evening said it found 34 rockets in southern Lebanon near the border with Israel. Ten rockets and a rocket launcher were discovered hidden in a concrete room near the village of Kafer Hamman while another 24 outdated rockets were found nearby, an army statement said. The rockets, all 107mm in caliber, were found about 6 kilometers from Israel's border. Friday's discovery comes a day after at least three rockets were fired from south Lebanon on northern Israel, lightly injuring two people. Israel responded with a few artillery shells. No casualties were reported in Lebanon.
