Israel responds to rocket attack with air strike on targets in Lebanon

Israeli air force jets bombed what an Israeli military source described as a ‘terror site’ near Na’ameh between Beirut and Sidon in Lebanon.

The attack was confirmed by a spokesman from the Palestinian militant group the Liberation of Palestine General Command.

There are no reports of any casualties as a result of the air strike which caused a 5-metre crater near the target. The bombing came 24 hours after four rockets were fired from Lebanon into northern Israel, an attack claimed by an al-Qaeda-linked Sunni Muslim group.

That strike damaged the area but no one was hurt. “Israel will not tolerate terrorist aggression originating from Lebanese territory” said a military spokesman in a statement, adding Friday’s cross-border salvo was in retaliation to the bombing in northern Israel.

Rockets have been fired into Israel intermittently by militant groups since the Israel-Hezbollah conflict in 2006.
