Israelis Run Off With Rockets - To Use As Souveneirs

Reported by Donna - July 24, 2006 -

Today on Fox News Live with Bill Hemmer (12 - 1 p.m.) the whole show was on the Israel/Lebanon conflict. The big story of the day was a katyusha rocket that had landed in the middle of a street in Israel injuring no one.

Bill Hemmer tried to get the tip of the rocket on the program by yelling after a guy who took off running with it. He wanted it as a souvenier, Hemmer said, and didn't stop running.

Luckily a little later in the program a forklift had gotten the body of the rocket out of the ground (no tip and no tail) and they allowed Hemmer to hold that and show it on the air, but he announced that a man was about to put it in his pickup truck to save as a souvenier.

Comments: These were the highlights of the show. Guys must play with their toys. So, if you see katoosha rockets on ebay - you know where they came from. Talking about humanitarian efforts was mentioned briefly, but obviously took a back seat to the live rocket.
