A utility building suspected to be a weapons storage facility for Hezbollah was the probable target of an Israeli airstrike on Lebanese territory near Janta in the Bekaa Valley two months ago.The Feb. 24 air raid was the first against a Hezbollah facility in Lebanon since the monthlong war in 2006 .Hezbollah admitted that one of its facilities was hit in the air raid, adding that only material damage was inflicted and that there were no casualties.It would also strengthen Hezbollah's rejection of various media reports in the aftermath of the air raid that claimed the target was a missile or artillery base used to pound Syrian rebels in the Yabroud area of Qalamoun.A rare roadside bomb ambush on March 14 against a passing Israeli army patrol in the Shebaa Farms was the only attack for which Hezbollah claimed responsibility, albeit after the event and by Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah, Hezbollah's secretary-general, in an interview with As-Safir newspaper last week.
