Tisha B'Av tonight

Eicha 1:13 :

מִמָּרוֹם שָׁלַח-אֵשׁ בְּעַצְמֹתַי, וַיִּרְדֶּנָּה

From above, fire has been sent down into my bones.

An Israeli man was killed Wednesday when a Katyusha struck Kibbutz Saar, north of Nahariya, as Hezbollah marked the resumption of strikes on northern Israel with a record number of some 210 rockets.

The strike brings to 19 the death toll from the rocket attacks since they began on July 12.

For the first time in five days, Hezbollah resumed firing rockets at Haifa. There were no immediate reports of casualties.

Also Wednesday, a missile fired by Hezbollah fell in an open area of the West Bank, some 70 kilometers from the northern border. This is the furthest a missile fired by the guerilla group has reached since the start of the conflict in Lebanon. There were no injuries.

In northern Israel, 16 other people were wounded and homes in four communities sustained direct rocket strikes Wednesday morning. At least 63 rockets fell within an hour.
