Israel Forces Attack Target in South Lebanon, Jazeera Says

July 2 (Bloomberg) -- An Israeli aircraft fired at a target in southern Lebanon, Al Jazeera said. The United Nations peacekeeping force in the area said it was looking into the report.

“Our military on the ground are checking these reports about the alleged explosion,” Andrea Tenenti, spokesman for the United Nations Interim Forces in Lebanon (UNIFIL), said in a telephone interview.

An Israeli army spokeswoman, speaking on condition of anonymity in accordance with military regulations, said as a matter of course the army declines to comment on foreign news reports.

South Lebanon is a stronghold of Hezbollah, a Shiite Muslim militant organization backed by Syria and Iran and designated a terrorist group by the U.S. The group last fought Israel in a month-long conflict in 2006.

“The enemy detonated an explosive device remotely against a telecommunication line in Zrariyeh” village, Hezbollah’s television channel, Al Manar, reported.
