Israel strikes at heart of Beirut, drops warning leaflets
The Israel Defense Forces targeted sites in Beirut proper, hitting a lighthouse used as a cell phone communications tower, said CNN's Jim Clancy from the scene.

"To the people who live in Hay El Soulom, Borj El Barajneh, Shiyah ... For your safety," one flier warned.

"You must evacuate these areas immediately and evacuate any area from where Hezbollah and its members or their assistants are launching their terrorist operations.

1. I guess they'll keep dropping leaflets
Until all the Lebanese have moved to Syria, and then claim the land as part of Israel. Sort of like they did with the Palestinians

2. I guess we get to find out if Hezbollah can reach Tel Aviv then

IIRC that was the standing threat for strikes outside of S. Beirut.

I guess we know what will be knocking the British terra stuff out of the news then.

3. Yep.
It's been interesting that that line has not been crossed yet.
