Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday that Israel was doing all that was "necessary" to ensure its security a day after Israeli warplanes struck a suspected Hezbollah target on the Lebanese-Syrian border.The warplanes launched four rockets on the border area of Janta in east Lebanon targeting a shipment of "qualitative" weapons, a security source told The Daily Star Monday.The Army did not comment on the attack directly, with the military releasing a statement Tuesday confirming only that four Israeli warplanes and an Israeli reconnaissance jet violated Lebanon's airspace the day before.Israeli troops patrolled the border with Lebanon Tuesday morning, sweeping area between the town Abbasiyeh all the way to the occupied Kfarshouba hills.Nabi Sheet is one of several areas in Lebanon associated with Hezbollah.
