It's a Stronghold

On NPR's Morning Edition Renee Montagne introduced the news about Lebanon by stating that Israel airstrikes hit "a Hezbollah stronghold" for the seventh day in a row. She also stated that the airstrikes were aimed at freeing two captured Israeli soldiers. For NPR the whole of Lebanon is a Hezbollah stronghold! The irony was that her interviews with Ivan Watson and Deborah Amos contained unnerving details about the reality of life under bombardment for civilians (especially foreigners trapped in Lebanon).
