IAF aircraft fired missiles at targets across Lebanon early Monday, killing nine and wounding 38 in a surge of reprisals after Hizbullah rockets slammed into new targets deep inside Israel. Three of the dead were Lebanese soldiers who were killed when aircraft attacked a small fishing port at Abdeh in northernmost Lebanon. Witnesses and media reported seven other soldiers were unaccounted for after the early Monday attack. There was no immediate comment from the IDF.
