4 Israeli troops hurt in missile attack on Lebanon border

JERUSALEM – Four Israeli troops were wounded on Wednesday when a number of anti-tank missiles were fired at an Israeli army vehicle on the border with Lebanon, the Israeli press reported.

According to Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth, militants believed to be affiliated with Lebanon's Hezbollah movement fired a number of anti-tank missiles at an Israeli force near the border fence in the Mount Dov region.

No group has claimed responsibility for the missile barrage, which comes ten days after Hezbollah accused Israel of killing six of its fighters – along with six Iranians – in a drone strike in the Syrian town of Quneitra.

The slain fighters included two Hezbollah commanders and the son of Imad Mughniyah, a Hezbollah leader killed by a car bomb in Syria in 2008.

So far, Israel has neither confirmed nor denied the airstrike that killed the Hezbollah men and the Iranians.

For over two years, Hezbollah has been openly engaged in the ongoing conflict in Syria, where the group has continued to fight alongside Syrian regime forces.
