BEIRUT — Israel’s Air Force bombed a militant target south of Beirut Friday in retaliation for rockets fired into Israel from Lebanon the day before, Reuters reports.
“Israel will not tolerate terrorist aggression originating from Lebanese territory,” military spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Peter Lerner said in a statement.
According to the BBC, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine said one of its bases had been hit by the Israeli jets, although they deny firing the rockets that provoked Israel’s response.
The Abdullah Azzam Brigades, a group linked to Al-Qaeda, claimed responsibility for the attacks on Israel, which caused damage but no casualties.
