Israeli warplanes struck Hermel deep inside Lebanon early Tuesday, 120 kilometers (73 miles) north of the Israeli border in the Bekaa Valley in eastern Lebanon, a known Hizbullah stronghold, witnesses reported.
Warplanes fired at least five air-to-surface missiles on the town, the witnesses said. It was not clear what was hit and whether there were any casualties. Another strike targeted an area near the Syrian border, about 10 kilometers (6 miles) north of Hermel. (AP)
