Among the Lebanese targets attacked by the IAF over the weekend were the radar positions on the Lebanese coast, belonging to both the Lebanese army and Hizbullah. The IDF Spokesperson's Office explained that some of the demolished radars were used in the fatal Hizbullah C-802 missile strike on an Israeli naval gunship Friday night.

Air Force jets also struck several tall buildings in the residential Dehiyah neighborhood in Beirut, a Hizbullah stronghold. The ruins of one of the demolished buildings blocked the exit from a bunker where Hizbullah chief Hassan Nasrallah was thought to be trapped. Three missiles were also reported at the Tripoli seaport, on the northern stretch of the Lebanese coast, and another one at the Beirut port, which handles 95% of Lebanon's commercial trade.

In another airstrike, IDF warplanes fired four missiles at a border crossing between Lebanon and Syria. A Syrian military installation is located at the crossing, although both Israeli and Syrian sources said that only targets on the Lebanese side of the border were targeted.
