Hezbollah Attacks Israeli Convoy

At least three are dead after Hezbollah fighters attacked an Israeli military convoy Wednesday, including a Spanish UN Peacemaker. The attack on the volatile Lebanon border is seen as a response to last week’s airstrikes by the Israel Defense Forces, which killed six Hezbollah operatives and six Iranians, including top commanders. Hezbollah claimed responsibility for Wednesday’s attack: “The Quneitra Martyrs unit targeted with appropriate missile weapons an Israeli military convoy comprising several vehicles and [transporting] Zionist officers and soldiers causing the destruction of several vehicles and inflicting many causalities on the enemy.” In return, the Israeli military fired at least 35 artillery shells into Lebanon.
