( As Israel continues battling the barrage of rockets fired from Gaza,  rockets were also fired at the Jewish state from Lebanon on Friday.

One of the rockets hit Metula, a village in the Upper Galilee. Maj.-Gen. (res.) Amos Gilad, director of political-security affairs at the Israeli Defense Ministry, told Israel’s Channel 2 that the rocket was not fired by the Lebanon-based terrorist group Hezbollah, but by a different radical organization.

Lebanese authorities said they have arrested a suspect in connection with the rocket fired at Metula. According to the Beirut-based Daily Star newspaper, security forces said the suspect's car had blood stains matching traces of blood discovered at the rocket’s launching site. The suspect may have been injured in the launching of the rocket, according to the Jerusalem Post.
