Apparently it is at least partially true.

Israeli jets have carried out air strikes in eastern Lebanon near the border with Syria, Lebanon's state news agency says.

Israel's military has not commented although an Israeli security source quoted by Reuters said there had been “air force activity in the north”.

Lebanon's national news agency said the air raids took place near the village of Nabi Sheet in the Bekaa Valley.

The Lebanese militant Hezbollah group has a strong presence in the valley.

Correspondents say Lebanon's eastern border is frequently used by smugglers and Israeli planes have targeted the area several times in the past two years.

Security sources say the targets may have been trucks of weapons from Syria destined for Hezbollah.

Israel’s prime minister is refusing to say whether his country carried out an airstrike against an alleged weapons shipment from Syria into Lebanon.

Standing alongside visiting German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday that Israel’s policy is not to discuss what others claimed it did. He says “we do all that is needed to protect the security of Israeli citizens.”

Lebanon’s state news agency reported that Israeli aircraft carried out two airstrikes late Monday near the Lebanese-Syrian border.

Israel has refrained from taking sides in the Syrian civil war but has carried out several airstrikes on suspected shipments of advanced missiles believed headed for Hezbollah guerrillas. Netanyahu has vowed to prevent such arms transfers.
