3 explosions heard in Beirut in new IAF strikes

Three heavy explosions were heard in Beirut soon after nightfall Wednesday, apparently new Israeli strikes on Hizbullah's stronghold in the capital's southern neighborhoods. The sound of the blasts came from Dahiya, the southern district that has been heavily bombarded for days, often hit in the early evening. There was no immediate word on casualties. Hizbullah's headquarters, already flattened by strikes, is located in Dahiya, a crowded Shi'ite neighborhood, where many of the residents have already fled elsewhere for refuge.
