In an attack on an IDF patrol on the Israeli-Lebanon border today, two IDF soldiers were killed and seven more were wounded:
Two soldiers were killed Wednesday when an Israeli army patrol came under anti-tank fire from Hezbollah operatives in the northern Mount Dov region along the border with Lebanon.
The IDF confirmed that at least seven soldiers were wounded in the attack and ruled out the possibility that a soldier had been kidnapped.
The two soldiers were not immediately named. They were identified as a company commander and a combat soldier.
The incident took place in an area of the border that doesn’t have a fence. At the same time, and for over an hour after the attack, IDF positions in the area, as well as on nearby Mount Hermon, were hit with mortar shells.
Israel responded to the attack with artillery strikes in southern Lebanon.
Stand for Israel will keep you updated on these events, and we ask you to join us in praying for the injured soldiers, as well as the families of those who were killed.
