All were equipped with a special tip that ensured they would not hit civilians, of course. (Notice that in reality they were fired in scattershot fashion, hitting Bedouin Arabs and landing in Syrian territory.)
“Six killed as 400 rockets pound North,” from Haaretz:
Nearly 400 rockets were fired at the north over the weekend, killing six people. This brings to 33 the number of Israeli civilians killed since the fighting in the north began on July 12.
Hezbollah fired 170 Katyushas across northern Israel yesterday. A barrage of 130 rockets landed between 4 P.M. and 5 P.M. Fadiya Juma’a, 60, and her daughters Sultana, 31, and Samira, 33, were killed when their home in the Bedouin village of Arab Aramshe absorbed a direct hit.
Kiryat Shmona was hit by about 30 rockets at the same time, which damaged a factory in the city. Safed, Maghar, Nahariya, Ma’alot, Shlomi, Rosh Hanikra and Acre were also hit. Some home and infrastructure damage was reported.
Eleven rockets landed in the suburban Krayot area of Haifa. Frida Kellner, 87, of Kiryat Ata, had a heart attack after she returned home from a bomb shelter and died on the way to hospital. Six people were lightly injured by shrapnel and about a dozen were treated for shock. One rocket in the barrage hit an apartment block, causing a fire. A local fire station also sustained some damage when a rocket landed nearby.
Rockets were fired at the Golan Heights yesterday afternoon but landed in Syrian territory. On Friday rockets fired at the Golan landed in Quneitra, on the Syrian side of the border.
Rockets also fell in the Safed area and in the Western Galilee yesterday.
