Clashes hit Israel-Lebanon border

Posted by alicemarziali su 21 febbraio, 2009

Lebanese security officials say two rockets have been fired from south Lebanon towards Israel. The rockets fell short of their target, landing in empty fields inside Lebanese territory close to the border. No one has claimed responsibility for Saturday’s incident. The Israeli army confirmed that a rocket fired from southern Lebanon landed in northern Israel, injuring a woman slightly. Lebanese officials said that Israel retaliated by firing several shells in the vicinity of the Mansouri and al-Qulaila areas near Tyre, from where the rockets had been launched. Al Jazeera’s Rula Amin, monitoring developments from Beirut, said it was the third time rockets had been fired from Lebanon into Israel since the military assault on the Gaza Strip. She said officials of Hezbollah, the Lebanese group, had told her that they did not need to issue a denial “because when they do something they usually claim responsibility”. Hezbollah and Israel fought a war in the summer of 2006. Fouad Siniora, the Lebanese prime minister, in a statement described the Israeli shelling an inexcusable breach of Lebanon’s sovereignty. He reaffirmed Lebanon’s commitment to the UN Security Council resolution 1701, saying the attack was a threat to the country’s security and stability and a breach of the resolution.
