I just received a call from Sefat. 7 ketusha rockets struck the city at about 2:40 pm. 16 people have been injured, 2 seriously. The rockets hit Bar Ilan’s extension center, the area surrounding the central bus station, the absorption center and at other points in the city. My friend was in the home of Simply Tsfat violinist Jonathan Lipschitz when the first rocket landed. The entire house shook. That rocket landed about 100 feet from Chaim Clorfene‘s home. My friend thinks most of the injuries were in the absorption center.

UPDATE: I spoke with Chaim Clorefene. He and his family are fine, thank God. He says that 20 people were injured. He also says five of the ketushas hit near his house. Ellen Silman now tells me more ketushas hit near Carmiel.
UPDATE 2: The Jerusalem Post is reporting one fatality from the Sefat attack. [The fatality was in Nahariya.] It also reports residents have been ordered into shelters, but none of the residents I spoke with were in shelters or planned on entering them.
