A siren was heard across Haifa Sunday after a Katyusha rocket fell in the area. Security forces said at least 10 Katyusha rockets fell on the Haifa area.

Police said eight people were killed and five others were seriously wounded at the train depot. The rescue of the injured is being delayed after many people abandoned their vehicles due to rockets, leaving them on the road to the Rambam hospital.

Israel Army Radio, quoting Arab news sources, is reporting as of 0700 that Hizbullah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah may have been wounded in an Israeli Air Force airstrike overnight (Sunday night IST) on Beirut.

There has been no other confirmation to the report, although analyists believe the Nasrallah is in a well-protected location beneath an apartment complex in the southern part of Beirut, the epicenter of several hundred sorties by Israeli warplanes.

This post will be updated as more details become available.
