Direct hits aren’t only occurring on the southern border. Since Monday, rocket sirens have been sounded in the Upper Galilee, in Kibbutz Yiron adjacent to the border with Lebanon, and in the border community of Avivim, where a rocket directly struck a house, and two other rockets launched at the same time landed in Lebanese territory.
Fire from Lebanon toward Israel also continued on Tuesday when a civilian was wounded by an anti-tank missile strike on a church near the Christian village of Iqrit in the Western Galilee.
