TEL AVIV, July 16 (RIA Novosti) - Lebanese radical Islamist group Hizbollah warned Israel Sunday that the country's third largest city Haifa, along with its suburbs, would "burn in flames" if Israel committed any "new foolish acts".

Israel launched a military operation in Lebanon after the Hizbollah movement took two Israeli soldiers hostage on Wednesday. Over 100 Lebanese civilians were killed and more than 200 wounded. Israeli aircraft also bombed the Gaza Strip.

Israeli emergency services said earlier Sunday that at least eight people had been killed and 17 wounded in a shooting in Haifa, as Hizbollah continued its fire against the country.

Lebanese sources said that in the attack on Haifa, missiles hit a railway station, the city port, and an oil refinery, killing nine and wounding at least 20 people.

The militant group threatened to focus its next missile attacks on Haifa's oil refining complex.

Haifa, home to about 270,000 people, is a major Israeli sea port. Russia has a consulate general in the city.
