The pro-Iranian Lebanese Hezbollah militia denied any suspicion that its fighters had crossed into Israel. "The information about clashes between members of the resistance and the Israeli enemy or about any infiltration is baseless," a spokesman said.
A southern Lebanese local politician in a village near the Israeli border told AFP that the area around his village was being bombed by Israel.
On Sunday, Hezbollah attacked Israel from Lebanon with artillery and guided missiles and described the attack as an act of "solidarity" with the Palestinian Hamas, which had launched a major attack on Israel the day before. The Israeli army responded to the shelling with artillery fire on positions in southern Lebanon.
