BEIRUT, Lebanon - Israeli warplanes attacked Palestinian militant bases in Lebanon Sunday in response to a rocket attack on northern Israel, Lebanese officials said. One militant was killed and at least five were wounded.
The Lebanese army said six rockets were fired at a base in eastern Lebanon while several others hit a base near the Mediterranean coast.
"Lebanese army anti-aircraft units opened fire at the hostile warplanes," the army said.
The jets targeted two militant command posts, one of which was used as a storage facility for weaponry and ammunition, the Israeli army said.
The planes carried three raids on a base of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command in Sultan Yacoub, a village about 3 miles from the Syrian border, Lebanese officials said on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
