Iran is playing with fire. Israel will not hesitate to drop a nuke on Iran if those rockets are fired on Israel.
***BARRAGE OF ROCKETS HIT HAIFA***
Katyusha rockets hit three cities along Israel's northern coast, including Haifa Sunday morning.
Two salvos of several rockets hit Ahuza, a central residential and business district of Haifa. Rockets also landed in the city of Acre and in Nahariya. A rocket also landed in the town of Kiryat Haim located north of Haifa, Channel 2 TV reported.
Channel 10 TV reported of rockets hitting also the Checkpost business district on the Haifa-Nahyaria highway.
Some 20 casualties were reported, mostly suffering from shock and anxiety. Shattered glass caused light injuries to some of the casualties.
From Israeli National news:
IDF Cannot Confirm Reports That Nasrallah is Injured
08:58 Jul 16, '06 / 20 Tammuz 5766
(IsraelNN.com) IDF Chief of Operations Major-General Gadi Eizenkot told Galei Tzahal (Army) Radio on Sunday morning that military intelligence does not have additional information other than the reports appearing in the Arab media.
Eizenkot was referring to reports that Hizbullah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah was injured in Israeli bombing raids over Lebanon.
Eizenkot stated that Israel assumes the terror leader is holed up in a bunker tens of meters (yards) underground, in the Hizbullah area of Lebanon. He stated Israel does not have information regarding his reported injuries, nor can officials deny or confirm reports that he has been moved to another area.
Okay - Does anyone know where I can get some good streaming video (preferably an English Israeli source, next an Hebrew source - after that I'll accept scumbags like CNNi/BBC).
I've only got expanded cable and am stuck with the four losers of re-rundom.
This map is great. Thanks.
There's war in the Middle East.
It must be Sunday.
Wish I had a TV link though.
That Israel Channel 1 was streaming last night....I dont know where the link is now
Since he was scheduled to make a statement Sunday, let's see how it comes about. I imagine the same way that we continue to get reports from Osama. (false)
