Lebanon aims not to start another war with Israel

Thursday, January 08, 2009

Lebanon's prime minister is condemning rocket attacks on Israel and has called for investigations by both the army and the United Nations. This has not stopped Lebanese guerrillas from firing a second barrage of rockets into northern Israel, striking a nursing home and injuring two people. Israel responded with artillery fire. The attacks threaten to open a northern front in Israel's offensive in the Gaza Strip. Jim Muir is covering this story from Beirut for our partner, the BBC, and he joins us now live.
