Israel has launched air strikes on two Palestinian militant bases in Lebanon.It came hours after an Israeli soldier was injured by rockets fired into northern Israel early this morning. Witnesses report seeing columns of black smoke rising from a military base just outside Beirut and another in the eastern Bekaa Valley, both run by the Syrian-backed Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestinian-General Command. Israel says one of the bunkers was used as an arms store. The exchange comes two days after a senior Islamic Jihad official and his brother were killed in a car bombing in southern Lebanon that the Palestinian group blamed on Israel.
