Meanwhile the Lebanese say they know nothing about any of this. The Daily Star published in Beirut, posted a report an hour ago (2:45 pm Wednesday) saying 
"Lebanese security sources denied knowledge Wednesday of an Israeli strike on Lebanese territory after reports said Israeli jets hits targets on the border with Syria. Lebanese Army sources told The Daily Star that there was no such activity inside Lebanon, although the military has registered increased violations of Lebanese airspace by Israeli jets since Friday of last week. In a statement, the Army said four Israeli warplanes violated Lebanon’s airspace at 2 a.m. Wednesday and conducted aerial maneuvers above various Lebanese areas for approximately six hours. The military also said that it registered two violations on separate occasions on Tuesday by eight Israeli warplanes."
