Israel-Hezbollah border skirmishes: Latest developments

Israel shelled and carried out air strikes on southern border towns Wednesday, including Yaroun, Maroun el-Ras, Halta, Kfarhamam, al-Naqoura, Aita al-Shaab, Blida, Mhaibib and Aitaroun.

Hezbollah for its part attacked the Israeli al-Radar post in the occupied Shebaa Farms.

The southern town of Mays al-Jabal was heavily targeted overnight by shells and phosphorus bombs, as clashes intensified between Hezbollah and northern Israel.

On Tuesday, Hezbollah claimed 13 attacks on Israeli positions and Jamaa Islamiya's al-Fajr Forces said it fired rockets from south Lebanon at Kiryat Shmona, while Israeli shelling killed a Lebanese soldier on a military post and a Syrian labourer in a farm.

More than 110 people have been killed on the Lebanese side since October, mostly Hezbollah fighters and more than a dozen civilians.

Israel says six of its soldiers and three Israeli civilians have been killed.
