Yesterday was a difficult one for the home front in Israel. 12 reserve soldiers were killed in Kfar Giladi in the north from a direct hit by a Katyusha rocket. Haifa received a barrage of 22 rockets last night which killed three people, injured 200, and caused extensive damage.
In response, the IDF has plans (pending government approval) to hit Lebanese infrastructure for the first time in the war. Until now they have bombarded the runways at the airport, but have left other structures alone. One defense official was quoted in Haaretz as saying "It could be that at the end of the story, Lebanon will be dark for a few years."
Meanwhile ground troops are continuing to fight in south Lebanon, and the IAF continues its strikes.
In the southern front, IAF is continuing its strikes on terrorist infrastructure in Gaza. In Judea and Samaria the IDF arrested Hamas terrorist Fadel Salah in Ramallah, and they killed a wanted fugitive near Jenin.
