WASHINGTON July 21 (Reuters) - An Israeli invasion of Lebanon is likely on Friday night, intelligence sources told NBC News, its affiliated network CNBC reported on Friday.

CNBC said an unidentified Western nation had also told NBC that Israeli troops were expected to enter Lebanon on Friday night.

Israeli spokesman Mark Regev, asked on CNN about reports of an imminent Israeli ground attack on Lebanon, said: "I can say the following. You have a threat there and we have to deal with the threat.

"We've had land incursions in the past and were going to have land incursions in the future. That's part of our strategy to hit Hizbollah from the land, the sea and the air," Regev said.
