Standing on a hill in southern Lebanon, Ahmad Awada stared at the Israeli shells falling on the nearby town of Abbasieh.Life was upended for scores of southerners Wednesday after Hezbollah missiles hit an Israeli convoy in the occupied Shebaa Farms and the Israeli army returned fire almost immediately. Some schools in Mari, Khiam and Ain Arab were immediately shuttered. Since six Hezbollah members and an Iranian Revolutionary Guard commander were killed in an Israeli airstrike in Syria earlier this month, both Lebanese and Israelis have been waiting for Hezbollah's response.In the town of Khiam, not far from the areas of the shelling, Mahmoud Fouani said the Israelis had surely been waiting for Hezbollah's move.
