More than 160 Hizballah rockets hit Israel July 30, as Hezbollah steps up its attacks.
The Israeli city of Kiryat Shemona took over a hundred Katyusha rockets in the attacks, setting fires all over the city and injuring 9 people. Since the war started, apartments and shops have been wrecked, factories and infrastructure damaged and almost all of the population have either been forced to flee or exist in shelters in the Galilee town..none of which you will see in the Main Stream Media.
Haifa was attacked again and is trying to recover from two weeks of constant rocket attacks.
Hezbollah has fired more than 3,500 rockets at Israel's civilians since the war began.
Oddly enough, I don't see anyone calling for humanitarian aid to help the thousands of Israelis injured, displaced or made homeless by Hezbollah's attacks on Israel.
And by the way, that's why the Lebanese town of Qana was hit...over 150 Hezbollah missiles per day were being launched out of there. Of course, unlike Hezbollah, the IDF leafletted Qana before they struck..not that it bought them any good will in the `international community'.
Hezbollah leader Sheik Nasrallah threatened to send more rockets into central Israeli cities after Afula was hit Friday night. In response Israel has reportedly deployed the joint US/ Israeli made Arrow anti-missile batteries and Patriot anti-missiles bought from the US in northern and central Israel. While not effective against the Katyushas, they may very well be able to take out Hezbolla's Iran-made Zilzal-2 long-range missiles before they reach Israeli air space.
