2 Israeli Soldiers Killed, 7 Wounded in Hezbollah Border Attack

The Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah fired a missile at an Israeli military convoy patrolling Israel's northern border earlier this week, killing two soldiers and wounding seven others. The attack from within Lebanon was reportedly in retaliation for an Israeli airstrike in Syria earlier in the month that killed six Hezbollah members. Also this week in Israel in the News:

• On Tuesday, visitors gather at the Yad Vashem Holocaust museum in Israel to observe International Holocaust Remembrance Day and the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp.
• House Speaker John Boehner's invitation to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address Congress is getting a mixed reaction from U.S. elected officials.
•The Jewish community in Ukraine is on edge as the city of Mariupol was hit earlier this week by a massive rocket attack.

The Fellowship is providing funding to help Jews in the area. This week's Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship's founder and president Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein on the U.N.'s hollow effort to commemorate the Holocaust.
