IAF strikes Hizbullah stronghold in Beirut

A series of large explosions shook the Lebanese capital in the early hours of Sunday as IAF warplanes apparently again pounded the Hizbullah's stronghold in Beirut's southern Dahiya suburb. Three huge explosions reverberated across Beirut in short succession, while other IDF raids struck the southern town of Sidon. The strikes in Sidon destroyed a religious building run by a Shi'ite Muslim cleric close to Hizbullah in their first hit inside the southern port city, currently swollen with refugees from fighting further south.
