Since the war in Gaza started, there have been a few incidents where small rockets were fired from Lebanon in the direction of Israel.

They were not fired by the Lebanese group Hezbollah, but by a man identified as Hussein Atawi.

He was injured while setting off a rocket and has since been arrested by Lebanese security forces.
