Some families flee southern border towns after Israeli shelling
Families in several border towns in southern Lebanon have started fleeing north as Israeli shelling continues in the area.
An Associated Press team saw several cars packed with people and belongings departing Monday. “We tried to flee Aita el-Shaab to Rmeish, but they told us everyone has to stay in their area,” a man said as he and his family tried to flee.
Israeli shelling intensified after four militants crossed over the border and clashed with Israeli troops on Monday. Several rockets were fired from near the Lebanese border earlier. A Hezbollah spokesperson denied the militant group’s involvement in the operation.
