New type of Hezbullah rocket lands in Afula

Five rockets of a new and as yet unidentified type landed in Afula a bit more than an hour ago. They landed in an empty field and no one was hurt, although they did start a fire that firefighters are now trying to control, with the assistance of a helicopter.

Here's the rest of today's Katyusha roundup (as of 4:00 PM) from JPost.com:
Rockets fired at the same time also landed in Kiryat Shmona, Rosh Pina, Tiberias, and Safed. While no one was reported wounded, a high-tension wire was damaged, causing power failures in some areas. The electric company was working to restore electricity.

Earlier Friday, one person was moderately wounded and several others lightly wounded when rockets fell on northern towns on Friday afternoon.

At least 11 rockets fell in Kiryat Shmona, Rosh Pina and Karmiel. Other rocket falls were sighted near Safed and Tiberias, while alert sirens sounded in those cities and in Haifa and Afula.

In Kiryat Shmona, a parked car was directly hit by a Katyusha rocket, destroying the vehicle but hurting no one.

Near Safed, rockets destroyed a local Magen David Adom building, the organization said. No one was hurt in the attack.
Note that no rockets hit Haifa. Here's why.
