Israel has carried out air attacks in south Lebanon, a day after an Israeli soldier died in the region.

The planes attacked areas around Zibqin and Mazrat Aalman villages in the south of the country on Tuesday. There were no immediate reports of casualties

In related news, the United Nations said on Tuesday investigations had found that an Israeli military bulldozer hit by a Hizb Allah rocket the day before was within Lebanon.

"After investigation, UNIFIL can confirm that the Israeli bulldozer was on the Lebanese side when it was hit," said Milos Strugar, spokesman for the UN Interim Forces in Lebanon (UNIFIL).
