Israeli warplanes renew airstrikes on Lebanon
font size    

Israeli warplanes renewed airstrikes on Lebanon early on Thursday.

Israeli military aircraft bombed a Lebanese army base in the Amsheet area north of Beirut and destroyed a radio relay station in the area, local media reported, citing Lebanese military sources.

Meanwhile, Israel warplanes also struck areas in south Lebanon.

There was no immediate report of any casualties in the Israeli raids.

The new wave of airstrikes came after nine Israeli soldiers were killed in fierce clashes against Lebanon's Hezbollah guerillas in south Lebanon on Wednesday.

Violence between Israel and Hezbollah erupted on July 12 when Hezbollah guerillas kidnapped two Israeli soldiers and killed eight during cross-border attacks.

Israel has been bombing targets across Lebanon in the 16-day- old massive onslaught while Hezbollah guerillas have been showering the Jewish state with rockets.
