Five rockets slammed into a controversial nuclear power station being built near here Monday night. The rockets were fired from the opposite bank of the Rhone River and smashed into the 80-yard concrete walls which will hold the fast-breeder reactor's core. Police said a Soviet Army antitank missile launcher was used in the attack.

No one was injured and damage was limited, police said.

Police said an anonymous caller claimed responsibility for the attack on the Creys-Malville site a short time later in the name of a ''Pacifist and Ecological Committee.''
