Eight civilians were killed, 36 injured, when Hizballah rockets from Lebanon hit Haifa`s main railway depot Sunday morning

The first barrage of at least 20 Iranian-produced Grad rockets from Lebanon struck Haifa Bay, Upper Hadar, Krayot, as well as Acre and Nahariya. The second round targeted Kiryat Haim, Kiryat Motzkin, Acre, Carmiel and Bat Galim.
The Israeli military identified the rockets as Syrian-manufactured 220mm and 120mm, Hizballah claimed they were Grads. Close to a million residents of affected areas as far east as Tiberias, which was first attacked Saturday, are ordered to stay in shelters and protected spaces and heed sirens. Citizens south of Haifa up to Tel Aviv, covering Israel`s central heartland were advised to be vigilent and be ready to take cover. Haifa`s streets were cleared. Nahariya to the north took Hizballah rockets for the fifth day, as are western Galilee moshavim.
