Grad, Katyusha, Fajar

The Jerusalem Post reports that following the rocket attack on Haifa more rockets have hit Israel's coastal cities, from Nahariya to Haifa.

The weaponry used by Hezbollah does not hide its provenance - the "Grad" (Russian for "hail") missiles have an old Soviet lineage, as do the Katyushas.

There is also the Iranian-made Fajar-3 missile.

Israel's transportation minister Shaul Mofaz has stated that the rocket which hit the train station in Haifa and killed eight people was made in Syria.
