Lebanon president: Israel's bombing act of aggression

Lebanese President Michel Aoun described on Thursday Israel's airstrikes on targets in southern Lebanon as an "escalation of aggression" and "serious violation" of the United Nations Security Council's resolutions.

"Israel's use of its air force to target Lebanese villages is the first of its kind since 2006 and suggests an intention to escalate attacks," Aoun said.

Israel launched airstrikes on parts of Lebanon in response to attacks on its own territory that came from that country, suspected of having been carried out by Hezbollah.
