Two Israeli soldiers were killed and another seven were wounded today (January 28, 2015) in a Hezbollah strike on an army convoy near the Lebanese border, the Free Republic website reports.
Israel's military responded to the anti-tank missile strike on its convoy with aerial and ground attacks on Hezbollah positions in Lebanon. A Spanish United Nations peacekeeper was killed by the Israeli attacks.
The Lebanese terror group Hezbollah claimed responsibility for the attack and said it destroyed a number of Israeli vehicles.
A statement from Hezbollah also said that the attack was carried out by a group calling itself the "heroic martyrs of Quneitra," indicating it was retaliation for an Israeli airstrike on the Golan Heights on January 18 that killed six Hezbollah fighters.
