Israeli Rockets Sustain Heavy Damage, Israel's Foreign Ministry Says

Hundreds of Israeli rockets were severely damaged when Lebanese soil came into contact with them, the Israeli foreign ministry announced yesterday.

"The Lebanese government has no right to damage our rockets using their soil," said Danny Ayalon, the Israeli ambassador to the U.S. "Most of these rockets are now totally unusable, and the vast majority of them were completely destroyed.

Early reports indicate that the rockets exploded when they came into contact with locations in Lebanon.

"This represents a serious escalation, and we hold the Lebanese government directly responsible for the damage our rockets suffered when they hit such targets as the Beirut airport," he continued. "It is beyond all doubt that the Lebanese government controls the airport, so when the runways contacted our rockets we immediately knew who was responsible."

Responding to the observation that the rockets were previously in Israeli F-16 fighter-bombers, Ayalon showed even more concern. "True, the rockets were in our aircraft before the unprovoked attack on them by the Lebanese infrastructure. We can only thank the Almighty that the Lebanese soil did not attack our rockets while they were still in the aircraft.

The U.N. security council is expected to address the matter Friday. The U.S. has called for an interim cease fire between the Israeli air force and Lebanese bridges. The security council is expected to debate the resolution for four months before tabling it.
