Rocket Barrage Continues

From Ynet News, 17/7/06, by Ahiya Raved

30 hurt in rocket barrages on north. One in moderate condition, 29 treated for shock or light wounds as Hizbullah rockets pummel northern communities. Residents of eastern Galilee, Rosh Pina, Carmiel, Safed, Nahariya, Haifa, Afula told to take shelter

Sirens sounded in the eastern Galilee, Rosh Pina, Carmiel and Safed once again Monday night, and rocket barrages were fired towards communities in the eastern Galilee and Upper Galilee, wounding 30 people. One of the casualties was in moderate condition, and the rest were treated for light wounds and shock.....

....As following attacks earlier this week, after the barrages Hizbullah broadcast a message saying it fired rockets towards Haifa.

Alarms were activated repeatedly, and residents reported hearing explosions echo through the region. Residents were told to take shelter in secure areas or bomb shelters. Sirens sent Nahariya, Haifa, Afula and valley residents into their shelters as well, but there were no reports of rockets hitting those areas.

....Monday Haifa suffered a number of barrages, and sirens sounded repeatedly throughout the afternoon. One rocket directly hit a three-storey building and severely damaged two of the floors.....
