Expanding Israeli Strikes Hit Bridges, Kill 12

HeadlineAug 04, 2006

Israel continues to expand the bombing of Lebanon. At least seven Lebanese civilians were killed in airstrikes on southern villages Thursday. Earlier today, Israeli warplanes bombed three bridges linking Beirut to northern Lebanon. The attack killed four civilians and wounded at least ten others. The bombings came just hours after Israel dropped leaflets on Beirut’s suburbs warning residents to flee their homes ahead of a massive bombardment. The Israeli newspaper Haaretz says the strikes are the worst northern Lebanon has seen so far.
