A Katyusha-type rocket landed in an Upper Galilee kibbutz on Tuesday evening, according to police, causing no casualties.

Police sappers were at the impact site, and the IDF also launched an investigation. Army Radio reported that the rocket landed near the northern town of Kiryat Shmona, and that a fire broke out in the impact site.

The IDF responded almost immediately to the attack, with IAF planes striking at the source of fire, according to Channel 2.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the incident.

In the last such incident, in September, two Katyusha rockets struck open fields near Nahariya, causing no injuries or damage. The IDF responded to the attack by firing some 15 artillery shells toward the source of the fire near the Lebanese city of Tyre.

At the time, IDF sources said the rockets were 122-mm. Katyushas, a short-range projectile known to be in the hands of Hizbullah, as well as smaller Palestinian terrorist groups that operate in southern Lebanon.

Comment: Let's see, this was the result of one of the following provocations:

Extremely loud music during Friday afternoon prayers across the border

Israelis yelling bad names across the border

Hand gestures unbecoming Israeli youth

Israelis holding up cartoons of Mohammed at the border crossing

Israelis dancing along the northern border with half naked woman as their partners

OK, none of the preceding, it is simply due to our existence-yeah that's it!
