Israeli army masses along Lebanon border
Nineteen days after the start of the Israeli offensive against the Gaza Strip, the Lebanese daily Al Safir reported Wednesday that southern Lebanon had witnessed the build-up of Israeli armored vehicles - tanks, military vessels and Apache helicopters - along the border.

"The Israeli army has mobilized its troops along the border from the western Lebanese village of Naqurah to the southern border village of Al Wazzani."

Citing military officials from Lebanon, the daily added that Israeli forces had also fired flares into the Lebanese territory.

While the report adds that the Lebanese army is on high alert, informed sources told Press TV's correspondent in Beirut that Hezbollah has also put its members on red alert.

Wednesday saw at least three rockets fired from the area of Habaniyeh in southern Lebanon into Israel. No casualties among the Israelis have been reported. Within minutes of the attack, Israel responded by firing eight rockets into southern Lebanon.

Following the rocket exchange, Israel sent telephone warnings to residents of southern Lebanon threatening to start a second front.

6. Would some please explain this numbering system to me?
Please? I know how to hit reply :-) but I can't figure out if there are responses to my posts since all the numbers are out of order. Thanks for the help. I'm somewhat new here.

3. Perhaps it has a teeny tiny bit to do with
those pesky katyusha attacks from yesterday and last week. You know? Those minor infractions of the ceasefire? :sarcasm:

Gee, ya think?

Or do you think it's perfectly OK to shoot missiles at Israeli civilians, but it's absolutely forbidden for the Israeli army to take a defensive posture and position its army at the border to prevent an escalation?

4. Defensive posture ?
and Hezbollah has said that they are not firing Katyusha's UNFIL has found more rockets and taking on Lebanon might be a little more costly than Gaza, oh what about those over flights aren't those also against 1701

5. They found the launchers. I posted an article about it earlier today. (+ link)

So, the citizens of southern Lebanon are probably safe for now from the Israelis "defensive posturing".
