Rockets from Lebanon!

"and the rockets red glare, gave proof through the night that the Hezbollah are still there."
It states:
 
It is not clear how many rockets were fired:
 
"We can confirm that a 122 mm Katyusha rocket was fired into the north of Israel from Lebanon last night," police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld said.

Army Radio reports said that two rockets struck Shlomi at approximately 2 A.M., one hitting a home and the second an electricity pole.
 
One or two?
 
Who fired them? Not clear either.
 
Where is UNIFIL? Where is the Lebanese army?

Rocket hits house near border with Lebanon
By Jack Khoury, Haaretz Correspondent Last update - 09:47 08/01/2008

A rocket that was reportedly fired from Lebanon early Tuesday struck a home in the western Galilee town of Shlomi.

The rocket caused no injuries but light damage was caused to the house.

The head of the Shlomi local council, Gaby Na'aman, said that it appeared that part of the rocket exploded in the air before hitting the house on Hazan Street in the city.

The Israel Defense Forces initially said it was old ordnance that exploded in Shlomi, but then said it was investigating further after receiving conflicting accounts.

"We can confirm that a 122 mm Katyusha rocket was fired into the north of Israel from Lebanon last night," police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld said.

Army Radio reports said that two rockets struck Shlomi at approximately 2 A.M., one hitting a home and the second an electricity pole.

"Several residents said that they thought it was thunder," Na'aman told Army Radio. "This morning, we woke up and discovered they were Katyushas," he continued, referring to the rockets often fired by Hezbollah at northern Israel, which have a longer range and more explosive impact than the Qassam rockets fired by Palestinians from the Gaza Strip.

In June 2007, two Katyusha rockets were fired at Israel from Lebanon, the first rockets to hit Israel since the Second Lebanon War the year before.

One of the rockets struck a factory in the Kiryat Shmona industrial center, and the second one hit an open field. The rockets caused damage, but no injuries. Military sources believed the rockets were not fired by Hezbollah, but a Sunni group in Lebanon.

During the 2006 war, Hezbollah bombarded northern Israel with nearly 4,000 rockets.
