The crisis escalates. Breaking news: “Hezbollah fires rockets at Haifa,” from the BBC:
The militant Lebanese group Hezbollah has fired rockets at the Israeli port city of Haifa, reports say.
There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.
Haifa, Israel’s third largest city, is situated more than 30km (18 miles) from the Lebanese border and was thought to be out of Hezbollah’s range.
UPDATE: The BBC story linked above has now been revised to include the detail that Hizballah denies firing the rockets. And at least one person is confirmed dead.
