Israeli planes drop object in Lebanon

HOULA, Lebanon, Jan. 10 (UPI) -- Israeli warplanes dropped an unidentified object in Lebanon Tuesday, Lebanese officials said.

The object was dropped in southern Lebanon in a ravine running between the towns of Houla and Tallouse, the Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported.

Lebanese security forces have been unable get close enough to ascertain the nature of the object because the area is cluttered with unexploded cluster bombs launched by Israel during the 2006 war with Hezbollah, the Lebanese news outlet Ya Libnan reported.

The Israeli military also performed drills Tuesday in occupied Shebba Farms and Golan Heights, dropping about 75 shells near the border between the two countries. The shells exploded near Shebba Farms, Ya Libnan said.
