Lebanon files complaint in UN over rocket retaliation

Lebanon filed a complaint in the United Nations Monday against Israel for its retaliation to Katyusha rockets that were fired into Israel late last month, Lebanese newspaper the Daily Star reported.
In response to the four rockets fired from Lebanon, the IDF pounded the launch sites with artillery shells. The Lebanese report claimed that only one rocket was fired from Lebanon into Israel and that the IDF fired six artillery shells.
Immediately following the rocket attack the IDF filed a complaint with the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), which launched an investigation into the attack. The UN force called for restraint from both sides.
Israel ultimately blamed an al-Qaida-affiliated group for launching the rockets.
