Katyusha rockets fired into Israel from Lebanon - World yawns

Rockets fired into Israel from Lebanon

Two Katyusha rockets were fired into northern Israel from Lebanon on Monday night, an Israeli police spokesman said.
It's the first time in more than six months that such a rocket has been fired from Lebanon into Israel.
Israeli munitions experts have examined the rockets, which landed in the northern city of Shlomi, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.
One rocket landed on a house patio and the other near a road, but there were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.
Katyusha rockets have a range of up to 25 km (15 miles) -- much longer than the more crude Qassam rockets, which are more commonly fired from Gaza into Israel.

"more commonly fired" is a euphemism for "fired every single day".
