Gaza War Spreading?

From BBC News:
Lebanon fired 3 rockets into northern Israel today, one hitting a nursing home & causing 2 minor injuries, according to reports. Israel fired 5 artillery shells in response. Is this war in Gaza spreading? I hope not. I am not condemning Israel for their action in reply & it appears no one was hurt. But let's not let this conflict widen.

In the same article, at the beginning, is a report from the International Red Cross that asserts that Israel has been denying them access to the wounded for days at a time.

The International Committee of the Red Cross accused Israel of failing in its international obligations after its staff were met with "shocking" scenes.

One medical team found 12 bodies in a shelled house, and alongside them four very young children, too weak to stand, waiting by their dead mothers, the ICRC said.

Aid workers had been denied access to the site for days, it added.
