How convenient: Hezbullah denies Israeli attack

Hezbullah is denying that Israel attacked one of its weapons facilities in the Bekaa Valley on Monday night, while Israel's Prime Minister is following the country's usual practice of not commenting. How convenient.
Asked during a joint press conference with visiting German Chancellor Angela Merkel whether IAF jets were behind the strike, Netanyahu stated, "Our policy is clear - we will not speak about reports of what we did or didn't do - but we do all that is necessary in order to defend our citizens."
Hezbollah denied the airstrike on their television network al-Manar. They said there had been "no raid on Lebanese territory," reporting only the "strong presence of enemy planes over the area north of Bekaa" in eastern Lebanon.
Thus far, the Israeli army has refused to comment on the reports.
Netanyahu has said repeatedly that Israel would not allow the Syrian regime to transfer chemical weapons or "game-changing" weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon.
Gee, ya think the IAF hit another weapons facility?  Maybe the Obama administration will tell us.
