Hizbollah Denies Israel Strike

Thursday, January 8, 2009

The Hizbollah minister in Lebanon’s cabinet has denied the group is responsible for rockets fired into Israel.

Earlier, Israeli forces fired mortars on Lebanon after rockets fell on northern Israel.

The move was “a pinpoint response at the source of fire”, an Israeli military spokesman said.

Three rockets fired from Lebanon hit northern Israel in the area near the town of Nahariya, five miles south of the Lebanese border.

Two elderly women were lightly wounded by one of the rockets, according to Israeli medical staff.

Meanwhile, the UN aid agency says it has suspended its operations in Gaza because of the danger from Israeli forces.
