1 killed, 12 wounded in Katyusha strike on Nahariya

The Jerusalem Post is reporting that one person was killed and twelve were wounded - one seriously - when four Hizbullah-fired Katyusha rockets landed in central Nahariya this morning. A rocket scored a direct hit on a house killing its inhabitant. Nahariya is on the Israeli Mediterranean coast's northernmost part (from the border, the northernmost point is Kibbutz Rosh HaNikra with the grottoes that many of you have undoubtedly visited, and the next town south is Nahariya).

Residents of the North were asked to remain in bomb shelters in anticipation of further attacks.

Nahariya is the farthest city (from Lebanon) that Hizbullah has managed to reach thus far.

My friend Harvey in Efrat is reporting that Israel has also bombed Beirut Harbor, from which ships can no longer move in and out, and that 20,000 reserve troops were called up this morning by Tzav 8 (literally order number 8 - emergency callup) and were going straight from synagogue to the front this morning.

This might be the place to stick a personal note - one of my wife's nephews was called up to Lebanon last night.

Carl, our prayers go out to your relative and all the brave men and women of the IDF.

What is the mood of the Israeli people right now? That's what I want to know.

Carl, my thoughts are with your nephew and all your brave men and women both serving in the IDF and just trying to live their decent lives.

Israeli's do not want war, do not deserve war, and if being right has any value, then Israel will win this fight.

My greatest wish for you and yours is for this atrocity to end.
