Rockets fired by Hezbollah guerrillas in Lebanon have killed at least eight people at an Israeli railroad station, as Israeli warplanes continued to bomb targets inside Lebanon.
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert warned of "far reaching consequences" after the Hezbollah rockets struck Haifa, about 30 kilometers from the Lebanese border.
It was the deadliest attack in Israel since the start of its offensive against Hezbollah, which captured two Israeli soldiers in a cross-border raid last Wednesday.
Israeli Defense Minister Amir Peretz today-Sunday vowed to continue attacks on the sources of rocket fire in Lebanon, including those in residential areas. He added that Israel does not want to reoccupy Lebanon.
Israel carried out more airstrikes south of Beirut, where the headquarters of Hezbollah is located. The attacks temporarily cut the signal from the Hezbollah television station al-Manar.
Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Siniora has appealed to the United Nations to broker an immediate ceasefire.
More than 100 Lebanese and more than 20 Israelis have been killed in the violence.
Israel says it will continue the offensive until Hezbollah guerrillas are disarmed and the captured Israeli soldiers are released.
