Hizbollah seems determined to replay last summer. Poor Lebanon:
2 rockets fired at Israel from Lebanon
By MARK LAVIE, Associated Press Writer 18 minutes ago
Two Katyusha rockets fell on northern Israel Sunday, the first fired from Lebanon since last summer's inconclusive war with Hezbollah guerrillas. No one was hurt, but there was some damage, police and the military said.
Hezbollah denied firing the rockets in a broadcast on the militant group's Al-Manar television.
The attack raised the possibility of Israeli reprisal and a new flareup between the two countries. It came as Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was arriving in the United States for talks.
"Israel will not succumb to this provocation but will monitor the situation carefully," said an official with Olmert, indicating that Israel would not hit back. The official requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation.
There was no immediate comment from the Lebanese government.
