Katyusha Rocket Lands in N. Israel

August 25, 1985|From Reuters

TEL AVIV — A Katyusha rocket fired from Lebanon landed in northern Israel on Saturday but caused no casualties, a military spokesman said.

"It was part of a whole barrage of Katyushas fired at the security zone in south Lebanon," the spokesman said. "One fell in Galilee, but we are sure it was meant for the security zone."

U.N. peacekeepers say there have been more than 50 attacks this month on Israelis and the Israeli-backed South Lebanon Army militia in the Israeli-controlled zone north of the border.

The rocket was the third Katyusha to land in northern Israel since most Israeli units were withdrawn from Lebanon more than two months ago.
