Israeli Strikes in Southern Lebanon

Oh, great! Just what we needed! Hizbullah and the Israelis are going at it in Southern Lebanon again. YaLibnan reports:
The volatile border between Israel and Lebanon was rocked by a series of tit-for-attacks in a disputed area that remains a constant source of tension between the two neighbours.
