Tense calm restored; PM: Nobody even 'scratched'; Israel returns fire with 100 shells, hits team that launched missiles, other targets in S. Lebanon; Hezbollah takes responsibility

Two Hezbollah members were killed in Syria. Today Hezbollah retaliated with a missile attack on an Israeli vehicle and a military base.
I’m there. Supposed to be visiting the ‘Blue Line’ minefields tomorrow. Now we’re stuck in a hotel 100km away watching it on Lebanese TV news. Hopefully it calms down as Lebanon still hasn’t tidied up from the 2006 inconvenience, and is currently also hosting 2m+ refugees from Syria.
