IAF warplanes pounded 130 targets in Lebanon on Friday, including a Hizbullah base in the Bekaa Valley where long-range rockets were stored, 57 Hezbollah structures, six missile launching sites and six communication facilities. At least three people were killed and nine were wounded in the strikes, officials said. Missiles fired by IAF jets destroyed three buildings in the village of Kfar Jouz near the market town of Nabatiyeh in southern Lebanon, and three people were killed and nine wounded, including four children, Lebanese security officials said. The raid apparently targeted an apartment belonging to a Hizbullah operative. Civil defense teams were struggling in the village to rescue some people believed to be trapped or buried under the rubble of one of the buildings, a three-story structure, witnesses said.
