Nazareth hit by Hezbollah katyushas, two children murdered

The Arab-Christian community in Israel came under attack today as well, when another barrage of katyusha rockets hit both Afula and Nazareth, and two children in the second town were murdered in the blast.
A barrage of rockets upon the lower Galilee towns of Nazareth and Afula has resulted in the deaths of two Israeli-Arab children Wednesday afternoon. Battles rage on all fronts.

Ten people were wounded in the Nazareth attack and the two brothers, Rabiya Abed Taluzi, aged three and Mahmoud Abed Taluzi, age seven, were killed instantly by the katyusha missile that struck the street in which they were playing, near their home.

In Afula, the town's main water line was damaged. Afula has been hit by several salvos of missiles in recent days.

Heavy IDF-Hizbullah fighting in continues in Lebanon, Katyushas rain in the north, a high alert in Sharon region, Kassams in south, and now-dispelled rumors of an abducted soldier all contributed a very tense day of war. A brief national electric outage added to the chaos.
And kassam rockets from the Hamas are still being fired at Sderot, which have resulted in one person dying of a heart attack:
Two Kassam rockets were launched at the Sderot area last night (Tuesday), causing no physical damage; several residents were treated for shock.

Moshe Shlomo, 52, of Sderot, died yesterday of a heart attack he suffered after a Kassam rocket landed near his home a week ago. Doctors who treated him say "there is no doubt" that the Kassam rocket was the main factor in his heart attack.

Shlomo's brother Herzl was killed in January 2005 in a terrorist attack at the Karni Crossing into Gaza.
Do you know why this is happening still in the south? It's because Olmert and Peretz are not creating a buffer zone where the army can guard against a lot of the terrorists setting up launching pads for the deadly rockets. In a way, the same also goes for up in the north, where, while the army has been going into Lebanon, they're still being harnessed so far.

While on the subject, I also recommend this article about Judea/Samaria residents who've been giving a helping hand to anyone fleeing the katyusha and kassam attacks.

Update: see also this entry from This Ongoing War (Hat tip: Melanie Phillips) about how the BBC's relentless anti-Israel bias causes serious harm to innocents, and should decidedly be made into a parliamentary discussion. And, here's an article by Robert Tracinski on Real Clear Politics worth reading too.
