Rockets fired from Lebanon on Israel

Is this Iran hitting back for the incident yesterday between their ships and the US Navy?

From CNN:
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.

A spokesman for militant group Hezbollah said he could not confirm if his organization was responsible.
