Hezbollah fires record number of rockets at Israel
Hezbollah fires record number of rockets at Israel
(AP)

2 August 2006



NAHARIYA, Israel - Hezbollah rockets struck Israel in record numbers and deeper than ever on Wednesday, killing a Boston-born man fleeing on his bicycle toward shelter as air raid sirens blared across the countrys north.


The massive barrage, which followed a two-day lull, came despite the Israeli army chiefs claim that the three-week offensive in south Lebanon had eroded Hezbollahs firepower. Lt. Gen. Dan Halutz also threatened to resume air raids against the Lebanese capital.

The bombardment lifted the number of rockets fired into Israel over the 2,000 mark, as the fighting entered its fourth week.

One missile fell near the Palestinian town of Jenin, leaving a 2-meter (6-foot) crater in a rural area of the West Bank. It caused no casualties, and Palestinians said the mistake would not change their support for Hezbollah.

1. Where are these weapons coming from?
How did a little decentralized group amass so many weapons?

2. From all accounts I have read... Iran
or some are "home made" perhaps.
