Two children, aged nine and three, were buried in Nazareth today after Katyusha rockets fell into the area where they were playing on Wednesday. The two boys are among the first of Israeli-Arabs killed by Hizballah since the terrorist organization captured Israeli soldiers causing a major crisis in the north.
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert expressed his condolences to Nazareth Mayor Ramiz Jaraisii shortly after rockets fell on this northern Israeli-Arab town.
Vice Premier Shimon Peres said the Katyushas are killing needlessly and indiscriminately.
“Nazareth that was hurt will also receive government aid like all other towns. Hizballah terrorists hurt Jews, Arabs, and Druze and they do not differentiate in their desire to murder,” Peres said.
