Rockets Fall in Lebanon

Initial news reports said this:

JERUSALEM — Israel's military said Hezbollah guerrillas fired at least 10 Katyusha rockets into southern Lebanon early Tuesday. None hit inside Israel and no injuries were reported.

The rocket explosions reported by Israel came hours after the start of a U.N. cease-fire in Lebanon.

The military said it has not responded to the rockets, which were fired over a two-hour period.

But CNN reports that the IDF does not yet know who fired the rockets (a rebel group, perhaps? according to CNN) and that there has not yet been a claim of responsibility. There is also speculation that these rockets may have been intended for northern Israel but did not reach their targets because Hezbollah has been forced into deeper territory by the presence of the IDF in the south.
