IDF sources revealed that some of the rockets that landed in Haifa on Sunday morning were Fajar 3 rockets, and not Katyushas. The Fajar rockets have a range of around 40 kilometers and carry more explosive material than Katyusha rockets. Instead of the Katyusha's 13 kilogram warhead, the Fajar 3 carries a 80-90 kilogram warhead. OC Northern Command Udi Adam said that the IDF was attacking the areas from which the Hizbullah was firing the missiles. He said the targeted attacks were complicated by the large number of Lebanese civilians in the area in south Lebanon.
