Firefighters in Lebanon were battling wildfires late on Tuesday that Lebanese civil defense said had been sparked by Israeli shelling, with the flames visible for miles as darkness fell. The fires started around 1700 GMT and were caused by Israeli shells containing white phosphorous being launched across the border, Abdalla Mousawae, head of the Tyre Regional Center of Lebanese civil defense, told Reuters.
