JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Rockets fired by Hizbollah guerrillas into northern Israel from Lebanon killed at least three people and landed in the deepest area yet since the start of an offensive three weeks ago.
Witnesses and police said two rockets landed in open areas near the city of Hadera, about 80 km (50 miles) from the Lebanese border. No casualties were reported, medics said.
"We were on the balcony and heard the siren," a witness who gave his name as Aviram told Israel's Channel 10. "I thought it was a false alarm. What a boom! I shook."
An earlier barrage of rockets fired by the group killed three Israelis, including one in a Druze-Arab village in northern Israel. The deaths raised to 30 the number of civilians killed by rocket fire from Lebanon since the offensive began.
The Hadera strike marked the furthest point such rockets had landed in what has become daily barrages by the group against the Jewish state and frequent Israeli air strikes in Lebanon. More than 200 rockets landed in Israel on Friday, police said.
Hizbollah said it had fired "Khaibar 1" rockets at Hadera in response to recent Israeli attacks. Israel killed at least 40 Lebanese civilians on Friday. The army said it had targeted infrastructure and buildings used by Hizbollah.

It is very clear to me that Hezbollah must in fact have a death wish. They have continued to attack northern Israel on a daily basis using rockets that are very indiscriminate and which constitute in my opinion, a war crime.
They are not strategically targeting Israeli military targets such as troops, tanks, or military installations, which is something one would do if you where waging a military campaign, but they are not doing this, they are openly and gleefully raining down rockets at whoever happens to be in that area at the time, these are the acts of terrorists plain and simple.
Israel has repeatedly taken attacks from its Arab neighbors in the form of suicide bombers with-in its own cities, constant rocket attacks, slayings of its soldiers and the abduction of Israeli soldiers.
Israel has also taken as much precaution to protect civilians as can be done during a war.
They urged in fact begged civilians to flee the strongholds of Hezbollah in southern Lebanon, with the hope of reducing the amount of civilian deaths due to Israeli airstrikes and artillery.
Those who remain in those areas known to be definite strongholds of this terrorist group due so at their own risk, they are in fact the ones who are feeding them and housing them, by this measure they are just as guilty as the people who they support.
Hezbollah also knows that Israel does all it can to avoid civilian deaths; this is why they surround themselves with the innocent, hoping that Israel will not attack, not invade, not bomb in fear of inflicting those casualties.
This is the enemy that Israel fights, cowards in bed sheets who hide behind women and children, who cover up their own faces because they have no honor, who send their own children to be blown up for a false god.
Yes you did read that right; I did say a false god. Anyone who believes that their god wants them to blow up innocent women and children, maim thousands, oppress women and kill anyone who does no believe in that god are first, stupid, second, they are ignorant and lastly with the things going as they are, dead or soon to be dead.
This is just another battle that has been on going with the Muslim world since the crusades and will stop until we have finally and forcefully crushed those savages in bed sheets. They do not understand reason and can not be bargained with and most certainly can not be trusted.
Ask Israel if the Arabs stick to their agreements and can be trusted if you don’t believe me.
