Israeli Forces Strike In Lebanon's North and South
The Israeli Army sends thousands of troops deep into Lebanon, backed by artillery and airstrikes. Hezbollah guerrillas strike back with one of the heaviest rocket barrages yet in the three-week-old war, firing more than 200 rockets into northern Israel, where one civilian was killed.
Israeli commandoes also engaged Hezbollah fighters in northeastern Lebanon, according to the Associated Press.
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert told journalists today that the operation in Lebanon will continue until an international force is deployed to disarm Hezbollah.
