Other rockets hit Peki'in, which is a neighboring village less than three kilometers away, Hatzor HaGlilit and Kiryat Shmona. 15:40 Closed my computer. The noise of the continuous explosions continues relentlessly. More Israeli artillery units are moved into place and their voice is now being heard. 16:00 Large Katyusha attack scares the heck out of family. I try to lighten the atmosphere so daughter Rachel and Chaim won't be so scared. 16:40 While watching the news I fall asleep exhausted. 19:52 Katyusha hits family home in Moshav Meron.
