Katyusha hits Haifa

A Katyusha rocket hit Haifa a short time ago. So much for the 25 km. range of those things.

The Jerusalem Post is reporting that two rockets launched from Lebanon landed in Haifa in the neighborhood of Stella Maris. Sappers came to the scene to neutralize the rocket that landed in the middle of a road. One person suffered from shock. The launch represented the farthest a rocket had ever reached into Israel.

Haifa is Israel's third largest city, includes its largest port, and has many sensitive infrastructure installations. This is the first time it has ever been hit with rockets fired from Lebanon.

This doesn't sound like a Katyusha....could it have been the Iranian Fajr-5 ? That's got a 45 mile range.
