Hizbullah Arms Depot Explodes

(AP-Washington Post) Ian Deitch - A series of blasts ripped through a building in the Hizbullah-dominated village of Shehabiyeh in southern Lebanon on Friday. Israel's military said Saturday that surveillance footage from drones shows that the explosions occurred at a residential building used by Hizbullah as a weapons depot. The footage shows Hizbullah militants removing weapons from the site and transferring them to other Hizbullah facilities. Israeli military spokeswoman Lt. Col. Avital Leibovich said it was the third time this year that explosions have torn through a Hizbullah weapons cache. She accused the group of maintaining military facilities - including bunkers and storage depots for large quantities of weapons - in 160 villages across southern Lebanon. The blasts occurred south of the Litani River, a zone where Hizbullah is banned from keeping weapons under a UN resolution that ended the 2006 war.
