Jerusalem (AP) For a second straight day, Israel has suspended its Gaza military operation for three hours to allow in humanitarian supplies.

In new fighting today, Israel killed at least 11 people, including five militants, raising the death toll from its offensive to 699 people, according to Palestinian officials.

Meanwhile, Lebanon’s Prime Minister has condemned rocket attacks on Israel from his country as well as the Jewish state’s retaliation.

In a statement, Prime Minister Fuad Saniora says the attack from south Lebanon was designed to undermine stability.

No group has claimed responsibility for the rocket firing.

Israel launched shells into southern Lebanon in retaliation.

Hezbollah and Israel fought a brutal 34-day war in 2006.
