Israeli newspaper releases green promotional balloons

Lebanese government declares it to be an "attack".

(Get this - citizens inhaling the Helium gas in the balloons were hospitalized ... who the heck inhales gas from balloons?)

An Israeli promotional campaign involving balloons caused panic among Lebanese civilians Saturday when the wind carried them over the border into southern Lebanon.

The Lebanese media reported that some civilians were hospitalized after inhaling the gas in the balloons.

However, the photographs published on the Web site of Hezbollah's TV station Al-Manar show green balloons from a promotional campaign for Ha'ir, a Schocken group newspaper.

Lebanese sources said the balloons reached the southern Lebanese cities of Nabatiyeh and Tyre, and the Lebanese army warned civilians not to touch them. Some were brought to Italian UN troops for examination.

Lebanon's official news agency claimed that they were "poisoned balloons" dispersed by IDF aircraft.
