Violence Continues in Middle East

It's been a bloody day for Israeli forces. The army says eight soldiers have died in a fiery campaign to take a strategic border town.

In the fight for Bint Jbail, both sides are accusing the other of unfair tactics. Hezbollah says Israeli forces are trying to advance toward a hospital. The Israeli army says several Hezbollah fighters took cover in a mosque.

In the face of fiercer than expected resistance, Israel's prime minister is ruling out a larger occupation, saying Israeli forces want to free about a mile-wide strip of southern Lebanon from militant control.

A top Israeli commander says he thinks it will take "several more weeks" before Israel can declare victory.
