5:58 PM Four missiles were launched at Israel from Tyre (Tzur), Lebanon. Three of the rockets fell outside of Israel. One rocket was intercepted by the Iron Dome system. Part of the Iron Dome intercept rocket fell in a residential area in Israel’s north. Global Jihad (not Hezbollah) is now believed to be responsible for the attack.

Four missiles were launched on northeastern Israel around 4:30 p.m. (9:30 a.m. EDT) Thursday. And the IDF intercepted one of them.

No damage or injuries were reported.

One or two of the missiles landed in the Galilee, and the fourth rocket overshot its target and landed in the Mediterranean Sea.

Residents in the coastal city of Nahariya and in the Western Galilee ran for shelters as sirens blared, warning of the incoming rockets. Bomb shelters in Acre (Acre), immediately south of Nahariya, were opened.

The Hezbollah-run Al Manar network in Lebanon said that the rockets were launched by Hezbollah terrorists from Tyre.

IDF has increased force preparedness in Tzfat an Kiryat Shmoneh as a result.

There have been multiple siren alerts since the launches.

Israel has closed all the airspace in northern Israel.

  11. israel_shield says:

    stscholasticas what are you talking about?

  12. stscholasticas says:

    israel_shield you posted about Israeli doctors helping ‘’arabs’’ ..so what? that is a doctors duty. when I was in military as a medic,,

  13. stscholasticas says:

    israel_shield …we never asked..what faith are you, etc..you save lives

  14. israel_shield says:

    stscholasticas who is we? What are you talking about? What don’t I use?

  15. stscholasticas says:

    israel_shield we<<<all medical people, doctors, nurses, paramedics, etc should NEVER have to pick which ones to care bout based on faith.

  16. israel_shield says:

    stscholasticas And my point was Israel treats even her enemies, not Apartheid, not racist. Thank you for agreeing

  17. stscholasticas says:

    israel_shield has NOTHING to do with Israel..has everything to do with doctors and medical oath.

  18. israel_shield says:

    .stscholasticas Really when was the last time any Islamic regime took in foreign Jewish patients or even let Israelis over the border?!

  19. stscholasticas says:

    israel_shield in Uk many muslim doctors..and never an issue.

  20. stscholasticas says:

    israel_shield again..you want to make this a jewish thing..it is medical…but you would have to have medical experience to see that

  21. israel_shield says:

    stscholasticas Why did you just completely ignore my question? Read it again!

  22. stscholasticas says:

    israel_shield as far as i know…none..why? think! how many Jews go to muslim countries?

  23. stscholasticas says:

    israel_shield but ..you could say that Catholic countries..such as here, Italy, do

  24. israel_shield says:

    stscholasticas Nope an Israeli thing. Israeli hospitals treat all unlike Arab countries. Who is the Racist country?

  25. israel_shield says:

    stscholasticas Understand what I said. My point was Israel is not racist or apartheid and the proof are Israeli hospitals, treat everyone.

  26. stscholasticas says:

    israel_shield and seperate road systems….think again

  27. israel_shield says:

    stscholasticas These are Syrian and Gaza people! They are an enemy entity with Israel and yet we still treat them because we are NOT racist

  28. stscholasticas says:

    israel_shield seperate buses, seperate road systems..reminds me of usa in 60’s with blacks

  29. stscholasticas says:

    israel_shield ah so orthodox males allow females to sit in front on their buses..think again

  30. stscholasticas says:

    israel_shield i am surprised that you dont have seperate loos lol

  31. Eva Feld says:

    Henry, Lebanon is not Syria. These rockets came from Lebanon and hit the northern part of Israel. Very dangerous indeed.

  32. Benjamin Fox says:

    Shoot back 4 for everyone and see what happens? You can not have peace Israel with a enemy that hates, murder's and lie's at all times, trust in your God, call on His name and He will protect you.

  33. stscholasticas says:

    israel_shield i know this, when anyone keeps repeating ‘’they are the enemy’’ long enough…they become the enemy.

  34. JoAnn Hodges says:

    Our prayers are with you. Ee love u.

  35. stscholasticas says:

    israel_shield http://t.co/qCwVPQqpve

  36. Gil Gilman says:

    For all that they are incompetent, and a cause for gratitude. If the IDF launched four missiles the results would have been far different.

  37. Joseph Colen says:

    You keep electing officials that want Israel to stop defending itself. This is your vote.

  38. DafnaYee says:

    Jews can’t go to Arab countries even if they wanted to; they would not be allowed in!

  39. DafnaYee says:

    None, because they are not allowed in, so they couldn’t go even if they wanted to.

  40. Ron Kall says:

    Exactly, Israel is signaling once again that they are weak! Why, because as Jews they feel they must show the world how moral Jews are! It never worked and it never will!

  41. Ron Kall says:

    Just like here in the US, when a politician stands for the real good of the nation, the left and mass media excoriates them and defeats them!

  42. aschops says:

    israel_shield stscholasticas The Syrians you treat for propaganda. Clever! The Gazans – you don’t treat at all. http://t.co/NlNqyJzfbD

  43. aschops says:

    israel_shield stscholasticas If you care so much about Syrians, let them resettle in the lands you stole from them. http://t.co/zOEgn2QG

  44. israel_shield says:

    aschops stscholasticas hi Rafael. A little fabrication. Syria attacked Israel and lost. The aggressor was defeated, read history.

  45. israel_shield says:

    .aschops stscholasticas more disgusted at what Islamic leaders can do to their own. They are dying and you are talking about land? Sick

  46. aschops says:

    israel_shield stscholasticas You read history – it’s widely recognized that the ’67 war was an illegal Israeli “pre-emptive” move.

  47. aschops says:

    israel_shield stscholasticas And even if your hasbara take on the facts was true, it doesn’t justify annexation and ethnic cleansing.

  48. aschops says:

    israel_shield stscholasticas Oh, so a civil war that started today retroactively justifies land theft and blood shed by Jews in ’67.

  49. aschops says:

    .israel_shield stscholasticas Oh, so a civil war that started today retroactively justifies land theft and blood shed by Jews in ’67.

  50. israel_shield says:

    aschops stscholasticas please show me who called the Israeli preemptive strike was illegal. Back up your claims our admit you lie

  51. israel_shield says:

    aschops stscholasticas please provide Abby proof of cleansing Barr on ethnicity

  52. israel_shield says:
