no media reports

The media has gone completely silent on any action up north since the rockets on kiryat shemona were reported false this morning.

However, we have earwitness reports that there were loud booms in both Maalot and Nahariya. It seems like either the military censor or the media have decided that this ceasefire is 2 sided.

This puts the people in the north in a bad situation because they are both getting bombed and no sympathy.

I will probably be going to work tomorrow and then up north to try and get an accurate situation report (as well as pick up some stuff that I forgot last time.)

"It seems like either the military censor or the media have decided that this ceasefire is 2 sided."

It's not even one-sided. There is no ceasefire.
"Thousands of Lebanese civilians took advantage of the bombing pause to flee north. But, explaining that the halt was “partial” and did not apply to Hizbollah targets threatening Israeli troops or civilians, the Israeli air force hit a truck close to a Lebanese border post at a crossing into Syria. The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) said it was carrying weapons; Lebanese police officials said it was carrying relief supplies.

Another air strike killed a Lebanese soldier near Tyre. The IDF said it mistakenly thought the vehicle had contained a senior Hizbollah official."
