Fox reports:

ON THE ISRAEL-LEBANON BORDER — Hundreds of Israeli troops moved into southern Lebanon on Saturday, taking control of a village and battling Hezbollah militants by land, sea and air as part of the country's limited ground campaign.

The soldiers — backed by artillery and tank fire — moved into the large Lebanese village of Maroun al-Ras in several waves and took control, military officials said on condition of anonymity.

Tens of thousands of Lebanese fleeing north packed into the port of Sidon to escape the increased Israeli offensive.

It's easier to stop missile launchings from the ground.
