Israel fired on from Lebanon

2 Katyusha rockets hit the northern Israeli town of Kiryat Shmona today. This was the first such attack since the war ended last summer. During my time over there, I went up to the Lebanese border at the Rosh HaNikra border crossing and since the UN-brokered ceasefire took, reports have all been quiet there. Everyone--including Kofi Annan--knew, however, that the ceasefire was temporary. There was no way it spelled an end to fighting between Israel and its enemies in Lebanon, those being Hezbollah and other Palestinian factions, the later of which seem to be responsible for today's attack.
