Israel hints at ‘full-scale invasion.’

Israel today “hinted at a full-scale invasion” of Lebanon, warning residents “to flee a nearly 20-mile swath of south Lebanon along the border. Its warplanes also launched new airstrikes on Beirut’s southern suburbs, a Hezbollah stronghold.” Meanwhile, U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan told the Security Council that “hostilities must stop” between Israel and Hezbollah, and condemned Israel’s “excessive use of force” in Lebanon.
