Hezbollah rocket damages utility pole, causing blackouts in several northern towns

One of the rockets in the latest barrage of projectiles fired toward Israel by Lebanon’s Hezbollah landed near an utility pole, causing damage that knocked out power in several communities in the north, according the Mateh Asher Regional Council.

A statement from the regional council says the Israel Electric Company is working to repair the damaged transmitter. It does not specify how many towns in the region lost power.

“We ask the public to listen to the instructions of the Home Front Command and community security officers,” the statement says.
