At least 20 huge explosions rattled Beirut over a two minute period on Sunday afternoon, and television reports said the attack was carried out by Israel warplanes.

Initial reports said that Israeli warships anchored off the Lebanese coast were firing artillery into south Beirut. The attack hit Dahiyeh, a Hezbollah stronghold, that has been pounded repeatedly by Israeli warplanes and ships.
