As residents along Israel's northern border from Nahariya in the west to Kiryat Shmona in the east were ordered into bomb shelters, the IAF attacked …. Earlier Wednesday evening, IAF warplanes and navy gunboats struck a Palestinian terrorist base south of Beirut, Lebanese security officials said, in the closest raid to the Lebanese capital since fighting erupted in southern Lebanon after the kidnapping of two IDF soldiers. All residents along Warplanes flew over the Naameh base in the hills overlooking the Mediterranean, about 16 kilometers south of Beirut. Gunboats sailed facing the position, and explosions rang out across the area. The base is run by the Syrian-backed Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command and was a frequent target of Israeli attacks in the past.
