    "Massive wave of Katyusha rockets strikes northern Israel"


    A Hezbollah rocket attack on the northern town of Nazareth killed two Israeli Arab children, brothers aged 3 and 9, on Wednesday afternoon, bringing to 16 the death toll from rocket strikes since the crisis in Lebanon began a week ago.

    Another 12 people sustained light wounds in the attack, and were evacuated to the Italian Hospital in the town.

    The two siblings were killed by a direct hit from a rocket while playing on the street, the Israel Defense Forces said. It was the first attack on the town.

    Upper Nazareth, the mainly Jewish town adjacent to the predominantly Arab Nazareth, was hit over the weekend.


    A massive wave of rockets battered northern Israel at around 3 P.M. Wednesday, with strikes in Haifa, Carmiel, Tiberias, Afula and communities in the Galilee.

    Some 70 Katyushas were fired at Israel within the space of an hour.


    On Monday, an Israel Air Force air strike in Lebanon destroyed at least ten long-range Iranian-made missile capable of hitting Tel Aviv, the IAF's chief operations officer, Brigadier General Ram Shmueli, said.


    Officials said the destroyed missile was an Iranian-made "Zilzal," which has a range of about 200 kilometers.


    During nearly a week of fighting, Hezbollah militants have fired missiles up to 40 kilometers into Israel. But officials have raised concerns the guerrilla group could strike Tel Aviv, roughly 120 kilometers south of the border with Lebanon.
