[This is the original photo which accompanied the Daily Star report…. Notice the “wooden launch pad” below is merely a 2×12 board, turned on its edge. Also notice the “shit-eating grin” on the face of the Lebanese soldier, watching the UNIFIL soldier photographing the Katyusha rocket, which is held together with duct tape and black electrical tape, as it is leaning on the “wooden launcher.” It is obvious to all that this rocket would tip the board over and fall-down, if ignited. This brings us to the “fuse.” These rockets are fired like a rifle, with an ignition cap, NOT a fireworks type of fuse. The rocket is also missing a warhead detonating tip. Just more garbage being circulated by the Zionist press.]
[Below is the new photo on the report. Today, IDF warplanes violated Lebanese airspace and bombed the area of the alleged rocket attack (SEE: Israeli warplane strikes area south of Beirut).]
