Following the firing of three Katyusha rockets at communities in the North on Thursday morning, the Home Front Command instructed all municipalities there to open bomb shelters. Defense officials carefully assessed that the incident was an isolated case and not indicative of an escalation on the northern border. Hizbullah officially stated it was not tied to the attack, but a defense official in Jerusalem said earlier that "nothing happens in Lebanon without getting a green light from Hizbullah."
