My name is Hassan, and I will not be ignored

Israel's military warned civilians to stick close to shelters Thursday after police said four rockets were fired into its north from Lebanon.

The rockets struck near the city of Nahariya, about six miles from the border, and left two people with minor injuries, emergency medical services said. The Israeli military said it returned fire across the border with mortars, and urged residents of its western Galilee region to open their shelters and stay close by.

Schools and kindergartens were closed in Nahariya and the nearby town of Shlomi, the Israel Defense Forces reported. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attacks, which came as Israeli airstrikes on Gaza, to the south, entered a 13th day.
