Defense Minister Matan Vilnai said on Tuesday that "we do not know who fired the Katyusha rockets. But we should
demand answers from the Lebanese government." The
rockets landed close to the Lebanese border,
causing some damage to a chicken coop and a gas tank. Firefighting crews
were called in to cool down a propane gas tank that was struck.
In an interview with Army Radio, Vilnai explained that
Hezbollah is in crisis because of the collapse of the Assad regime in
Syria, but that does not necessarily mean that they were behind the
attack. "We live in a volatile region; there are constant threats
against us," Vilnai said.
