El movimiento Hezbollah lanza misiles al puerto de Haifa. Tercera ciudad en importancia de Israel.
No ha habido informes sobre bajas o daños.
Fuentes israelitas informaban sobre sus dudas acerca del alcance de los misiles del Hezbollah, pues el puerto de Haifa se encuentra a 30 kms de la frontera libanesa.
Sin embargo, sus informes parecen ser errados.
El ataque con misiles es la respuesta al bloqueo por mar y aire que mantiene Israel después de la captura de dos de sus soldados por el movimiento Hezbollah.

Hezbollah fires rockets at Haifa
The militant Lebanese group Hezbollah has fired rockets at the Israeli port city of Haifa, reports say.
There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.
Haifa, Israel's third largest city, is situated more than 30km [18 miles] from the Lebanese border and was thought to be out of Hezbollah's range.
The attack comes as Israel imposes an air and sea blockade on Lebanon, following the capture of two of its soldiers by the militant group.

Reaction to attacks
Israel has intensified its attacks on Lebanon as jets launched fresh strikes on Beirut airport, the road to the Syrian capital and a power plant.
The Israelis concentrated on the southern suburbs of the city, known to be a stronghold of Hezbollah militants.
The offensive, which has killed more than 60 Lebanese since Wednesday, follows the capture of two Israeli soldiers by Hezbollah.
The UN Security Council is holding an emergency meeting.
Lebanon has urged it to adopt a resolution calling for a ceasefire.
The escalation has sparked international calls for restraint.
French President Jacques Chirac said the Israeli air strikes were 'completely disproportionate' and the Vatican described them as an attack on a sovereign and free nation.
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said he would agree to a ceasefire if Hezbollah returned the two captured soldiers and stopped firing rockets at northern Israel, and Lebanon implemented UN Security Council resolution 1559, calling for the disarmament of the militant group.
US President George W Bush has promised to press Israel to halt attacks, the Lebanese prime minister has said.
For their part Hezbollah continued to fire rockets into Israel, which have killed at least two Israelis in the past two days.
The Israeli army ordered residents of the city of Haifa to take refuge in bomb shelters, a day after the city was hit by rockets, the Associated Press news agency reported.
No explanation was given as to why the order came when it did.
Israel says it struck 18 Hezbollah targets in the latest sea and air attacks, killing three civilians and wounding at least 50.

Ground forces responded with anti-aircraft fire, as planes flew over the city.
Israel had warned that the south of the city could be targeted - telling residents by leaflet to stay away from Hezbollah locations.
Residents said two of the victims were crushed to death in their car following the collapse of a bridge on the road to the airport.
The Israelis also struck a fuel storage tank at the Jiyyeh power plant.
Black smoke rose from southern Beirut, as firefighters fought blazes. Some areas are now without power.
Residents hoarded food and queued for petrol, amid fears of prolonged violence.
Lebanese police reported a strike on a pro-Syrian Palestinian group, less than 2km [1.2 miles] from the Syrian border.
Israeli troops along the northern border with Lebanon resumed heavy shelling.
'Playing with fire'
Israel has said the international community should make it clear to Iran and Syria - which Israel says form an 'axis of terror' with Hezbollah and Palestinian militants Hamas - that they were 'playing with fire'.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in a telephone call that there would be a 'fierce response' to any Israeli attack on Syria.
The US says Israel should exercise restraint but is also demanding that Syria put pressure on Hezbollah to stop attacks on Israel.
The Israeli offensive follows a day of heavy fighting on Wednesday in which the Israelis suffered their worst losses on the border for several years.
Eight soldiers were killed and two were injured, in addition to the two captured in a Hezbollah ambush.
Hezbollah has said the captured soldiers will not be returned without a release deal for Palestinian, Lebanese and other Arab prisoners held in Israeli jails.
Israel is also continuing a separate offensive in the Gaza Strip. An Israeli soldier was captured there last month.
