BREAKING NEWS Israeli soldiers engaging in gunbattle with Hezbollah fighters near Israeli village of Avivim, Israeli military sources say.


I got a map so we can see where.



Is this the start to a ground offensive?

Sorry forgot link.

It sounds like a skirmish right now, but what other info is there?

Let's hope it does not develop into a full-blown ground war. *crosses fingers and hopes they haven't brought tanks in*

Whats odd is this statement.


it is not clear whether the firefight occurred in Israel, Lebanon or was a cross-border incident.

I think its on the Israeli side.

Skynews showed footage, it looked like on the Israel side.

I don't find that so odd really because just the other day it was being reported that Israel was ground trooping into Lebenon and then the story was pulled saying no they weren't. So perhaps they are making sure before they state where the fighting is really taking place. And I think too it makes a difference on who crosses what line here.

Hope that makes sense, what I wanted to say sounded much better in my head then written down.

The News Channels are reporting it is taking place on the Lebanese side of the border (They won't say exactly where for 'security' reasons) 2 Israeli soldiers reportedly killed, 4 injured is what 2 news channels are saying, Lebanese Al Manar TV reporting 1 Hezbollah fighter killed.

Apparently Israeli soldiers crossed the border to attack Hezbollah positions.

Sky News showing Many Israeli Ambulances massed on Israeli side of border near the skirmishes.

Actually, CNN is now reporting that Israli ground troops have entered Lebanon.

Adds yet another dimension to this escalating conflict.

well this is it. Full scale war. Not merely strikes from aircraft. Remember, even before and after Gulf War 1 and 2 was officially declared, US and British jets were in constant patrol in Northern and Southern Iraq, taking out AA sites
