Shots Fired Across Israeli - Lebanese Border

The following news report comes from Al Jazeera. Tensions are again rising along the fortified border between Lebanon and Israel.

"Lebanese and Israeli forces have been exchanging fire near the border between the two countries.

There has been increased military activity along the border as an engineering corps from the Israeli army searched for explosive devices, it believes have been planted by Hezbollah, near the frontier on Wednesday."


And from the Houston Chronicle:
"Lebanese troops deployed along the border with Israel opened fire late Wednesday as Israeli troops searched for Hezbollah bombs, drawing retaliatory fire, officials from both sides said.

It was the first time that shooting erupted across the border since shortly after an Aug. 14 cease-fire that ended a 34-day war between Israeli forces and the Lebanese Hezbollah militants.

Lebanese troops opened fire on a bulldozer after it crossed the so-called Blue Line — the U.N.-demarcated boundary — and entered about 20 yards into Lebanon, Lebanese officials said.

Israeli troops responded with tanks and light weapons, Israeli security officials said on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
