Lebanese army says it fired on Israeli helicopters

Al-Reuters is reporting that the Lebanese army claims that it opened fire on four Israeli helicopters that were trying to land troops near the town of Yammouni in the Beka'a Valley in Eastern Lebanon. The report is attributed to 'security sources and witnesses.' According to Al-Reuters, the helicopters flew away before Israel launched air raids on the area.

What makes this report more plausible is that Al-AP is reporting that the air force did strike Hezbullah positions in this area around 9:00 tonight, firing at least two missiles according to 'witnesses.' Al-AP is also reporting that helicopters opened machine gun fire on the mountainous area about fifteen kilomteres from Yammouni.

This fits in well with what I believe the next Israeli move is.

An armored run into the Bekaa to bring Syria into the war.
