[tor-talk] How tor skip firewall ?

Dear list,

I have implemented some iptables rule to block some sites based on time module.
The settings are working perfectly fine. But when tested through tor browser,
none are working. The iptables rules are applied on the lan card explicitly
to be sure that the rules are applied on ethernet. Still through tor none is working.
Is not the packages generated by tor passing through the ethernet device ?
Then why the rules are not honored ? Are those packets encrypted ?
Please give some clue. Thanks
