Clashes between Hizbullah, Israel continue
In the latest clashes on the tense Israeli-Lebanese border, Israeli warplanes blasted suspected Hizbullah hide-outs in southern Lebanon Thursday shortly after the Lebanese resistance fighters attacked Israeli outposts in an occupied border area.
Two Israeli jets fired six air-to-surface missiles on hills on the outskirts of Kfar Shouba, a small farming village near the disputed Shebaa Farms.
Israeli artillery also shelled suspected positions in areas near the Shebaa Farms.
The Israeli air and artillery action followed Hizbullah gunners firing mortar shells and rockets on Israeli outposts in Ramta, Roueissat el-Alam and al-Samaka inside the Shebaa Farms area.
According to AP, Hizbullah issued a statement in Beirut, saying its fighters scored "direct hits" in the 6 p.m. attack on the three Israeli outposts.
An Israeli army spokesman confirmed the Hizbullah attacks and Israeli retaliations.
Earlier Thursday, Lebanese army anti-aircraft gunners fired at Israeli warplanes flying reconnaissance missions over southern and Mount Lebanon, an army statement said. No direct hits were reported. (Albawaba.com)
