Just hours after a northern Israeli town was hit by rocket fire, Israeli jets retaliated, attacking a Palestinian terrorist training base near Beirut, Israel's deepest strike inside Lebanon since June 2004. The jets fired at the base of the Syrian-backed Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command. The top general for northern Israel, Maj. Gen. Udi Adam, vowed to retaliate against future attacks from Lebanon and did not rule out targeting Syria. “The main message that … we are trying to give is that the Lebanese government must take responsibility for what happens in its territory,” Adam said. He said Israel will not allow rocket fire into northern Israel to become a daily part of life. Rocket attacks in northern Israel usually come from Hezbollah, which denied responsibility for this attack.
