BEIRUT (AFP) -- Lebanon's Hezbollah movement on Tuesday claimed a bomb attack against Israeli troops on the ceasefire line between the two countries that wounded two soldiers.
Hezbollah fighters "detonated an explosive device on the Shebaa hills against a motorized Israeli patrol causing a number of injuries among the occupation's soldiers," the group said in a statement.
The group said the attack was carried out by the "martyr Hassan Ali Haidar unit," which is named for a Hezbollah member killed on Sept. 5 when an Israeli listening device in Lebanon was detonated remotely as he tried to dismantle it.
Israel confirmed two soldiers were wounded in the blast, and an army spokeswoman said the attack took place "on the Israeli side of the border." more
