A very successful operation was completed deep into Lebanon last night. IDF special commandos, on specific intelligence information, were dropped by helicopter onto a hospital in Baalbek. They killed 10 Hizballah terrorists, took five Hizballah officials back to Israel, and returned to Israel without one injury to our soldiers.
Other IDF operations in the area found and destroyed ammunition depots.
In an earlier battle in Ayta al Shab three IDF paratroopers were killed after heavy fighting, and 7 Hizballah terrorists killed. Fighting continues there.
According to this report in Haaretz, Hizballah is showing signs of panic - they have started to lie on their tv broadcasts on Al-Manar. This article, also in Haaretz, quotes Lebanese sources who point to Hizballah's failures.
