Two Katyusha Rockets Fired from Lebanon at Northern Israel

This represents a gradual escalation, with two Katyusha attacks from southern Lebanon in one night, on the heels of an attack two days ago.

Two separate Katyusha rocket attacks were launched at Israel from across the northern border in southern Lebanon Monday night, with both landing in the Upper Galilee, according to Israeli security sources.

The rockets landed in open areas near Kiryat Shmonah, local sources said.

The Code Red incoming rocket alert system apparently was not triggered by the second attack for some reason.

The city of Kiryat Shmona has opened its urban war room and issued emergency advisory guidelines for residents, warning them to remain in protected areas until further notice.

The IDF returned artillery fire — some 18 shells — to the source of the rocket launches, according to the Hebrew-language Rotter.net website.

The Code Red incoming rocket alert siren sent residents racing for shelters in Kiryat Shmona, Metullah, Kfar Giladi, Beit Hillel and a number of other communities.

It is not yet clear whether anyone was hurt in the attack, or whether any property was damaged.

It was the second such attack in less than three days.

Two 5-year-old children in the upper Galilee suffered shrapnel wounds Saturday night (August 24) in a Katyusha rocket attack from southern Lebanon. They were treated on the scene before being taken to hospital, where they were later listed in good condition.

Eight others were also taken to hospital to be treated for shock, and 13 people were treated on site for trauma and anxiety. All told, 23 people were hurt in the attack.

Lebanese authorities tracked down the launchers in the town of Dheira, about two miles (three kilometers) north of the border with Israel.

  1. So Iran have gave up on Hamas and now is time with Hezbollah?

  2. They are provoking israel from all sides knowing that israel will have no free hand to smother their existence thanks to the world opinion. Israel brought it upon herself.it made concessions even unilateraly in the vain hope of peace .It let everybody pushs it around.Israel should be as radical as its enemies are.As responsible as its enemiez are. The force it avails to punish them shoud be aweful and short.It should also work on the main purpose of its mission:annihilating iran with overwhelming power without flinchi g by the verh idea of the consequence.The world is tired of iranian mullahs -worthless thieves bundled at the head.
