12-Dec-11: Incoming midnight rockets

Katyusha rocket being fired into Israel from southern
Lebanon 2006
A little after midnight (Sunday night), a Qassam rocket fired by the terrorists of Gaza crashed and exploded in an open area in the Shaar Hanegev region of southern Israel. There are no reports of injuries or damages though this was, of course, not the intention of the people doing the firing or of those who directed them to do it.

Meanwhile on our northern border, according to Reuters, a Lebanese person was injured overnight when rocket fired by the terrorists of Southern Lebanon into northern Israel fell short and crashed into a house in Houla, a Lebanese village. The firing is said to have come from the Wadi al-Qaisiyeh area, about 2 km (one mile) from the frontier in the zone controlled and patrolled by  United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL). That's the area in which the Hezbollah terrorists are forbidden from having weapons (hah!).

But in reality - as we noted just three days ago ("Up north, it's continuing to grow hotter") - the jihadist terrorists there, no less than those of Gaza, have their orders from their masters in Iran to escalate the pressure for reasons that perhaps you need to be a terrorist to fully comprehend.

UNIFIL, by the way, gives no sign of being perturbed. Its spokesman is quoted on Beirut radio saying "UNIFIL rejects reports suggesting any violation of UN Resolution 1701 and is working to restore normalcy." This is almost certainly true: being humiliated by the terrorists of Lebanon is, for the UN's representative forces, a return to the normal state of things.
