ROUGH CUT - SUBTITLED (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Israel shelled southern Lebanon on Monday after the Hezbollah militant group set off a bomb targeting Israeli forces at the Lebanese border. Hezbollah's attack was an apparent response to the killing of a key Hezbollah leader, Samir Qantar, in Syria last month. Syrian refugees were caught in the crossfire. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) UNIDENTIFIED SYRIAN REFUGEE MAN FLEEING SHELLING, SAYING: "It was just around Al-Wazzani, three or four shells hit near us, all people ran away." (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) UNIDENTIFIED SYRIAN REFUGEE WOMEN FLEEING SHELLING, SAYING: "I don't know where the shelling came from... clouds were everywhere. (Reporter asking: Did you have any wounded?) No, thanks God." Hezbollah has vowed to retaliate against Israel following the killing of Qantar. The United Nations is urging both sides "to exercise utmost restraint against any provocation."
