Israel has had patriot missles furnished by the US since the 1990 invasion of Iraq,why haven't they used them on the missles being shot into northern Israel by the Hezuballah??

They are not made to shoot down the rockets being fired.
They are ment to shoot down scud ranged missles, which have a much longer flight path and flight time to get to them.
They also fly much higher than the rockets that are being fired.
