Hezbollah vows response to 'Israeli air strike'


Hezbollah on Wednesday confirmed an Israeli air raid two days earlier on one of its positions in Lebanon and vowed to respond "at the appropriate time" to the "blatant aggression".

"This new attack amounts to blatant aggression against Lebanon, its sovereignty and territory," the armed Shiite movement said in a statement, adding that "it will not stand without a response from the Resistance, which will choose the appropriate time, place and means".

The statement came two days after Israeli warplanes struck a Hezbollah target near the Lebanon-Syria border, according to Lebanese sources. Israel has neither confirmed nor denied launching the attack.
