Israeli aircraft hits Hizbollah TV in Beirut, 6 hurt

BEIRUT, July 13 (Reuters) - An Israeli helicopter fired a rocket into the building of Hizbollah television in the group's stronghold in Beirut's southern suburb on Thursday, wounding six people, witnesses and a security source said.

The raid in Haret Hreik neighbourhood which houses Hizbollah's leadership and media offices also slightly damaged al-Manar television headquarters. One of the wounded was an employee at the station, its chief said.

The strike came two hours after aircraft bombed two runways at Beirut international airport as part of an Israeli assault in Lebanon in retaliation for Wednesday's Hizbollah attacks in which two Israeli soldiers were captured and eight killed.
