Israeli security officials said Hizbullah has fired Iranian-origin rockets toward strategic facilities in the northern city of Haifa. Haifa contains a petrochemical plant, oil refinery and naval base.
On Sunday, two rockets fell into a strategic facility complex near the Haifa port. Officials would not identify the facility but said damage was caused.
“It could have been a lot worse, but we’ve been expecting this attack for at least a week,” a government source said.
At the same time, Israel has been bracing for longer-range Hizbullah rocket attacks that could reach the Tel Aviv area. On Sunday, the military sounded sirens of an imminent rocket strike in the towns of Binyamina and Zichron Yaakov about 75 kilometers from the Lebanese border.
