Israeli Aircraft have attacked Beirut Airport, forcing its closure. The air strikes intensify an assault against Lebanon, the day after Hizbollah seized two Israeli soldiers and killed eight more. In southern Lebanon, Israel staged a series of dawn air raids that reportedly killed over 20 civilians, including a number of children.

In what is the worst violence between Israel and Lebanon for a decade, Hizbollah hit back by firing 60 rockets into the northern Israeli city of Nahariya, killing an Israeli civilian.
