Two people were killed in Haifa and 12 were injured, one seriously in a new barrage of rockets on Sunday. Thirteen rockets landed in the city area, directly hitting cars and two houses.

One person was killed while driving, while the other was killed when a rocket directly hit a carpentry shop in the Haifa vicinity.

Sirens were sounded in Zichron Yaakov, south of Haifa, for the first time.

"I was home, we have nowhere to go,” said Edna Zinger. “I hid behind the wooden wall in the house. We did not hear any rockets falling and now it's quiet."

A child was wounded in Carmiel on Sunday. One of the rockets there started a fire. Rosh Pina was also hit and another barrage rocked the Upper Galilee communities, near the northern border. There were no reports of injuries or damage.

The northern communities faced a heavy hail of rockets throughout the weekend. At least 150 rockets hit the area Saturday, 54 of them hitting Nahariya, 34 hitting Carmiel, and 26 hitting Kiryat Shmona.
