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:
