Breaking: Missile hits Shlomi, alarm in Nahariya

Israel Radio reports that a rocket shot from southern Lebanon hit Shlomi, a town on the border in the last few minutes and that warning sirens have gone off in Nahariya where a rocket hit this morning.

Shlomoi is just east of Nahariya. The rockets are being shot from near Bint Jbeil - the site of a major battle in the summer of 2006.

Helicopters over Jerusalem again.

More to follow.

Al-Manar is showing Lebanese army and UNIFIL on patrol trying to find missile shooters.

Ten minutes ago al-Mustaqbal said it saw a missile shot from Charta, which is in southwestern Lebanon.

Lots of IDF helicopters in southern Lebanon. Residents of south Lebanon hiding in their homes. Fouad Saniora to go on television shortly to condemn firing on Israel. Saniora has already said that he regards the shooting of missiles at Israel and the Israeli reaction as violationss of UN Security Council Resolution 1701.

Yes, they're afraid of us. This is from Naharnet's breaking news updates on their home page:
10:58am Maronite Patriarch Nasrallah Sfeir: The rocket attack on northern Israel shows that intentions are not good. We don’t want to be killed and beaten again.
More on the Maronites here.

There were rockets that fell around Nahariya 20 minutes ago.

Fouad Saniora has announced that he and UNIFIL are obligated without conditions to UN Security Council Resolution 1701 and will investigate who is shooting. Saniora says that whoever shot the missiles is trying to hurt Lebanon.

Israel Radio no longer seems sure that new missiles were fired. No one saw them land, but lots of people heard the booms and were convinced they were missiles.

Send Bint Jbeil to a fiery hell.

The idiots on Reshet Bet radio are bobbing their heads up and down about having to look at the Lebanese attacks in proportion to their relatively trivial damage to people and property.

That's how it always starts.

They are now saying the this 2nd attack may have really been sonic booms from our jets overhead.
