US calls Lebanon rocket fire "provocative"

WASHINGTON - The United States is calling for "restraint" from both Israel and Lebanon after three rockets, fired from Lebanese territory, hit northern Israeli towns.
"We strongly condemn the firing of rockets from Lebanon toward Israel," State Department deputy spokeswoman Dina Badawy told The Jerusalem Post. "This was a provocative act that undermines the stability of Lebanon and the security of Israel."Badawy called the rocket fire a violation of the Blue Line, as prescribed by UNSCR 1701.
The State Department could not immediately confirm the source of the rocket fire, or details of the incident, Badawy said.
