Israel to continue air strikes on Lebanon

Israel to continue air strikes on Lebanon
Eight loud explosions shook Beirut, 20 minutes apart, as Israeli jets attacked the city's southern suburbs at dawn. Seven people died in Israeli air strikes on north Lebanon early Friday.

Israeli aircraft have also dropped leaflets warning Beirut residents to leave the area. On Thursday, Hezbollah rockets killed a child and one other person in Israel. Rockets were launched in the Haifa suburb of Kiryat Yam and the Hezbollah leader has urged Israeli Arabs to flee the city, with the threat of more attacks.
