Israeli warplanes pound Lebanon

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Israeli warplanes pounded Lebanon on Friday and the army prepared for a possible push further into Lebanese territory to drive out Hizbollah which threatened to launch rockets further into Israel if central Beirut were hit.


Israeli warplanes replied with airstrikes on Hizbollah strongholds in southern Beirut, already pounded earlier in the war. Leaflets dropped over the suburbs had warned residents to leave parts of the area on Thursday. Air strikes also hit targets across southern Lebanon and near Baalbek in the Bekaa Valley, witnesses said.


Nasrallah offered to stop the rocket barrage if Israel ended attacks on civilian areas in Lebanon.


Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora said on Thursday the war had killed 900 people in Lebanon and wounded 3,000. He said a million Lebanese, a quarter of the population, had been displaced. The Reuters tally of deaths is 687.
