Israeli soldier captured in Shebaa: News agency

BEIRUT – An Israeli soldier was captured on Wednesday during a Hezbollah attack on Israeli military vehicles in the Israeli-held Shebaa Farms region of Lebanon, Lebanon's state-run NNA news agency reported.

The Israeli army has yet to comment on the assertion.

The Israeli media, for its part, reported that at least four Israeli troops had been injured in the Shebaa Farms region when their vehicle was struck by a barrage of anti-tank missiles.

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