Israel strikes S. Lebanon after Shebaa Farms attack

BEIRUT – The Israeli army fired artillery at several sites in southern Lebanon on Wednesday after an Israeli military vehicle was struck by anti-tank missiles in Lebanon's Israeli-occupied Shebaa Farms region, a Lebanese security source has said.

"Israeli forces fired several artillery shells at the Magidiya, Kafr Shobaa and Wazani districts of southern Lebanon," the source told The Anadolu Agency without saying whether the attack had left any casualties.

At least four Israeli troops were injured earlier Wednesday in the Shebaa Farms region when their vehicle was struck by anti-tank missiles.

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

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