via HK published on July 13, 2006

Beirut : Israeli aircraft have attacked two runways at Beirut international airport in a continuing assault on Lebanon that was sparked by the seizure of two Israeli soldiers by Hezbollah guerillas.


The aircraft have fired at least six rockets at the runways and a nearby road, forcing the facility to close and flights to divert to other airports.


Israel vowed a severe response to Hezbollah’s cross-border attack yesterday.


Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s Cabinet said Israel held the Lebanese Government responsible for the attacks and for the safe return of the seized soldiers.
