Lebanese man launched rockets at Israel

Hussein Atawi, hailed as a hero by some Lebanese and condemned by others, was arrested for launching rockets at Israel.

    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.
