Outgoing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended last Friday’s bombing raids on Lebanon. Israel will not “not remain idle in the face of an assault on its residents,” he told his Cabinet. Israel bombed power stations and bridges near Beirut in response to Hezbollah rocket attacks that killed two residents in northern Israel and wounded at least 12, one seriously.
