Air fields in northern Israel, including the Haifa airport, were partially shut down Wednesday in response to an attack by Hezbollah on Israel’s northern border earlier in the day.
Israeli airlines will continue flights, but private flights have been temporarily banned.
Two soldiers were killed, seven others were wounded and a civilian home was destroyed in the multi-prong attack.
The home destroyed was in Ghajar, a small Druze town on the Lebanese border. The town was placed on lockdown following the missile attack and ordered to remain in sheltered rooms in case of further attacks. Movement into or out of the town was prohibited.
In addition, the northern part of the Golan Heights has been declared a temporary closed military zone. The region from Dafna to Mas’ade is closed to civilians until noon Thursday.
