A number of shells fired Tuesday by Palestinian terrorists in south Lebanon landed near Metulla and Kirya: Shemona. There were no casualties and no damage. However, residents were forced into shelter for a while, interrupting Purim celebrations by the area’s children. The shells hit Israel after a night -long duel between the terrorists and the Christian militia in south Lebanon.
