Rockets fired from Lebanon set off two explosions in northern Israel, prompting a response from Israeli military and reigniting a longstanding feud between the neighboring countries.

The explosions rocked Kiryat Shmona early Sunday, but no injuries or damage was reported, according to Israeli police. No one immediately claimed the attack, but Israeli military returned fire, shelling the source of the launch, hitting a region around the southern Lebanese border area of Rachaya, the Associated Press reports.

“We will not allow incidents such as those of this morning to pass quietly,” Israel’s defense minister said in a statement. “I would not recommend to anyone to test our patience and our determination to protect the security of the people of Israel.”

The bordering countries have maintained peace since 2006, when Israel was at war with Hezbollah guerrillas in Lebanon. The incident follows the death of an Israeli soldier by a Lebanese army sniper earlier this month.

THIS IS THE BIGGEST MOST CUNNING DANGEROUS  TERRORIST ORGANIZATION  GROUP IN THE WORLD AND IN OUR TIME.


Among the most disturbing political phenomena of our times is the emergence in the newly created state of Israel of the "Freedom Party" (Tnuat Haherut), a political party closely akin in its organization, methods, political philosophy and social appeal to the Nazi and Fascist parties. It was formed out of the membership and following of the former Irgun Zvai Leumi, a terrorist, right-wing, chauvinist organization in Palestine.The current visit of Menachem Begin, leader of this party, to the United States is obviously calculated to give the impression of American support for his party in the coming Israeli elections, and to cement political ties with conservative Zionist elements in the United States. Several Americans of national repute have lent their names to welcome his visit. It is inconceivable that those who oppose fascism throughout the world, if correctly informed as to Mr. Begin's political record and perspectives, could add their
names and support to the movement he represents.

Looks like Hezbollah stirring the pot! Trying to turn Syria'a civil war into a regional conflict! This could go downhill fast!

@delight Mr. Begin passed away 12 years ago, after being a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. This piece of trivia just shows how disoriented you are and how trustworthy is the whole propaganda apparatus targeting Israel.

@DavidWitcraft Syria's war is already a regional conflict and has been from the beginning. The pot is already stirred.
