Towns in northern Israel continue to suffer rocket attacks, with the strikes hitting further and further into Israeli territory. In the north-Israeli town of Tiberias some houses have been reduced to rubble by Hezbollah missiles fired from Lebanon on Saturday. It was the furthest into Israeli territory that the rockets have reached since hostilities started on Wednesday. Although there were no casualties, it’s an ominous sign for Israel. Tiberias is 35 kilometers from the Lebanese border, the same distance as Israel’s third largest city Haifa.
There are fears in Israel that Hezbollah has the capability to launch rocket attacks on Tel Aviv. After visiting the site of an attack in Meron on Friday, Israeli army chief Dan Halutz said that he didn’t think Israel needed any guidance from the UN on how to react to the escalating violence.
