Hezbollah says it attacked Israeli soldiers “crossing the border” into Lebanon

The pro-Iranian Hezbollah movement claimed on Monday it had activated “explosive devices” as Israeli soldiers crossed the border into Lebanon, while Israel reported four soldiers wounded.

Lebanon’s Hezbollah has been engaged in daily firefights with Israel since the start of the Gaza war between the Israeli army and the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas more than six months ago, but this is the first time it has reported an operation of this kind.

Hezbollah militants “placed explosive devices in the Tal Ismail area near the border with Israel, which exploded after Israeli soldiers “crossed the border,” the group said in a statement.

The Israeli army, for its part, said that four of its soldiers who were “active in an area on the northern border” were injured during the night “after an explosion of unknown cause,” one of them seriously.

The army did not confirm that its soldiers had crossed the border into Lebanon and refused to provide details to AFP. She limited herself to saying that “an investigation is underway.”

This attack comes after a weekend of tension in the region.

On Saturday evening, Iran launched an unprecedented attack with around 300 drones and missiles against Israel in response to a bombing at its consulate in Damascus that the Islamic Republic blames on the Hebrew State.

At the same time, Hezbollah announced that it had fired two volleys of rockets at Israeli military positions in the Israeli-occupied Syrian Golan.

Israel, for its part, carried out several attacks on Lebanese territory.
