    At the same time the Lebanese Al Manar television reported that the Israeli military fired shells into South Lebanon.
    Yoni David (42) a resident of Kiryat Shmona said his family heard explosions as they were having dinner. "We went into the shelter," he said, "my five-year-old daughter began to cry and my 11-year-old son was also very upset."
