The Australian:

“As many as 20,000 Israeli troops were pouring into Lebanon last night after Israel ordered an advance of up to 30km in the most significant escalation yet of its offensive against Hezbollah.

“The push to the Litani River, 80km south of Beirut, began last night with troops backed by helicopters, fighter-bombers and artillery clashing fiercely with Hezbollah militants at four points along the Israel-Lebanon border.”
