Israel attacks main city strongholds in Beirut, this attack was mounted because Intel suggested that Iran had its elite military guard over with Lebanese forces helping backup any offensive strategies. As of 100 Iran soldiers were posted with Lebanese forces in Beirut. The attacks here are getting stronger, hoping to scare off any Iranian help from the outside and the inside.
BEIRUT, Lebanon - Israeli warplanes hit central Beirut for the first time and smashed the Hezbollah leadership's main strongholds, as strikes killed at least 18 Lebanese fleeing the onslaught. Hezbollah rockets continued to pour into
Israel, where officials warned citizens that Tel Aviv could be hit.

The deadly barrages came as Israel charged that
Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards have 100 troops in Lebanon providing Hezbollah key support — including helping fire a missile Friday that badly damaged an Israeli warship. Hezbollah denied it.

Hezbollah has missiles with ranges of 60 to 120 miles, the official said at a briefing on condition of anonymity due to the sensitive military nature of the subject.The intelligence official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the information, said about 100 Iranian soldiers are in Lebanon and helped fire the Iranian-made, radar-guided C-102 at the ship that killed one and left three missing.

The attacks are only intensifying and the outlook for further attacks are imminent for Beirut, with conformations coming of possible Iran elite forces at work, Israel will not stand for that, as they are attacking the main strongholds of central Beirut. For the events unraveling across the world in the Middle East, US leaders are asking a stand down of all forces from Lebanon. But for the G-8 summit with Russia there seems to be a division on how to stop the fighting on the Mediterranean.

This help from Iran is only making Israel more offensive in the attacks as one after another to keep the Iran leaders from helping in the attacks on Israel, as of the attacks earlier this week when Iran made missiles attacks the Israeli ship in the Mediterranean. Also for further developments the attacks of earlier this morning showed the Israeli offensive to quicken more Missile outposts and not so much connections to other countries.

The casualty rate has risen as of 32 civilians and 15 children are dead in Lebanon. From the 80 or so rockets that have attacked Israel only about 10 Israelis were wounded. Also for the amount of casualties of the Israeli offensive 99 are dead only three of which are Lebanese civilians. The attacks are deadly and the battles are very real, with more than over a hundred dead as of now the list is growing. The brute force of Israel is increasingly strong as for the Lebanese the attacks are stronger and more deadly than ever. Lebanon will not quit as of now and neither is Israel, the two countries are fighting for their freedom and for their beliefs. The battles are a lot about power, and with Lebanon getting help from Iran that only leaves room for Israel to attack more to even out the offensive.

In any war, the first casuality is the truth.

We only have Israeli sources that say Iran has a hand in what's occuring in Lebanon. Conversely we have both Hezbollah and Iran denying this. So basically you're forced to choose sides.

I dont believe a single word Israel says. The people who carried out the false-flag attack on the USS Liberty are more than capable of lying about Iranian involvement to later justify an attack on their acrch-enemy.

Iran on the otherhand doesnt have to get directly involved. Why would it run the risk of allowing Israel a cassus beli when it can just sit back and watch Hezbollah operate? Hezbollah is an admitted proficient military entity. They singlehandedly forced Israel to withdraw from Southern Lebanon in 2000. Why would they need Iranian Revolutionary Guards to show them how to operate missiles? I can believe that if they'd just received these missiles but that is impossible given that Lebanon was effectively sealed off from the outside world following the abduction of the 2 IDF soldiers.

Either Iran had striking forsight and knew Israel would take the capturing of two soldiers and launch an all out naval blockade and attack on Beirut in retaliation, and henceforth sent 100 Revolutionary Guards with missiles to Beirut to defend the city. Or Israel is taking an embarrasing Hezbollah UAV drone attack and spinning it into Iranian involvement.

I know what I believe
