The violence between Israel and Lebanon continued this morning as Israeli war planes bombed Beirut's airport for a second day and dropped leaflets on Beirut's suburbs urging residents to avoid Hezbollah offices.

This just adds to concern that Israel is planning to target the guerrilla group's leader, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah. Hezbollah continues to fire rockets at Israeli towns across the border.
