Rocket fire reported in north as fire official warns of dry season dangers

Hezbollah says it shelled a site in the Har Dov area of the eastern Galilee near the border with Lebanon.

Reports in Israel indicate two rockets were fired at northern Israel, landing in open areas.

Speaking to Army Radio, the top fire official in the north warns that while such attacks outside populated areas are largely harmless now, as the weather heats up, they will become increasingly dangerous.

“We need to prepare for the summer, fire season…. in May, when everything is dry, every impact will ignite a blaze,” Yair Elkayam says. “We’re doing yeoman’s work to see how we can prepare for incidents affecting multiple areas at once.”
