Israelis Hammer Guerrilla Positions

Israeli warplanes and artillery pounded suspected guerrilla positions in southern Lebanon on Saturday, security officials said.

Two Israeli warplanes fired four air-to-surface missiles at guerrilla positions in Iqlim al-Tuffah, a stronghold of the Iranian-backed Hezbollah group, the officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Israeli troops also fired 155 mm howitzer shells at suspected Hezbollah positions in the Iqlim al-Tuffah region, just across from an Israeli-occupied border enclave.

The Israeli airstrike came after Hezbollah guerrillas fired mortars and rockets at an Israeli outpost in the eastern part of the border enclave. There were no injuries or damage as a result of that attack.
