According to Hezbollah-operated al Manar network, the military deployed the 11th infantry brigade along the western sector at the south of the country. Also according to the network, Lebanese antiaircraft forces opened fire at "hostile aircrafts" circling above Har Dov.


"If Israel imposes a naval blockade during a future war, all civilian, military and commercial ships that approach its ports will be in danger," said Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah during a speech broadcasted on satellite.


Nasrallah warned that "whoever tries to reach the shores of Palestine will come under heavy fire by the fighters of the Islamic resistance."
