Israeli military authorities say they are prepared to strike at any part of Lebanon if Hezbollah guerrillas continue to attack Israel.
Israeli military forces have imposed an effective blockade on Lebanon carrying out air, sea, and ground attacks - including bombing Beirut's international airport. Defense
Minister Amir Peretz says Israel will not allow Hezbollah guerrillas to reoccupy their positions in southern Lebanon.
Peretz says Lebanese army forces should be deployed along the border - something Lebanon's government has so far refused to do. Israel is continuing to carry out military strikes in the Gaza Strip - destroying the offices of Palestinian Foreign Minister Mahmoud Zahar, a senior Hamas militant.
