Israeli army patrol attacked, Hezbollah claims responsibility
An anti-tank missile was fired at an Israeli military vehicle on Wednesday in Mount Dov, along the Israeli-Lebanese border, injuring several Israeli soldiers. Lebanese Shia militant group Hezbollah later claimed responsibility for the attack.

In a statement, Hezbollah said, “At 11.35 am, the Qoneitra martyrs squad of the Islamic Resistance targeted an Israeli army convoy composed of a number of vehicles and a number of Zionist officers and soldiers, with the appropriate missiles, which led to the destruction of many vehicles and the injury of many enemy soldiers”, a news agency reported.

According to a television station, six Israeli soldiers were injured during the attack and the Israeli army responded by shelling intensively the eastern sector of south Lebanon with at least 200 mortar shells.

The television station added that the Israeli air force is currently overflying the region and executing mock raids over the region.

Earlier, according to a report from Jerusalem, the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) confirmed that anti-tank missile was fired at an Israeli military vehicle on Wednesday in Mount Dov in Shebaa Farms, along the Israeli-Lebanese border, injuring several Israeli soldiers.

The incident took place on a part of the Israeli-Lebanese border which does not have a security fence. The attack comes a day after rockets were launched from Syria at northern Israel’s Golan Heights.

The IDF did not confirm the number of soldiers injured and their condition was initially unclear and not officially confirmed.
