IDF not ruling out ground incursion
Israel has hit hundreds of targets in Lebanon since Wednesday night, as part of its effort to force the release of two soldiers kidnapped by
Hezbollah guerrillas, a top Israel Defense Forces general said Thursday.
Speaking to reporters, GOC Northern Command Major General Udi Adam said Israel was targeting infrastructure in Lebanon that held rockets and other arsenals belong to Hezbollah. Hezbollah guerrillas launched more than 80 rockets and mortars into Israel as well on Thursday.
He said the IDF was not ruling out sending ground troops into Lebanon, but was not planning a massive call up of reserves.
He also did not rule out targeting Nasrallah.
"All operations are legitimate to wipe out terror," he said.
