3 Israeli soldiers injured in exchanges across Lebanon border, IDF says

3 Israeli soldiers injured in exchanges across Lebanon border IDF says

Three Israeli soldiers were injured by mortar shells fired from across Israel’s northern border with Lebanon, the Israel Defense Forces said Monday.

“Overnight, a number of mortar shell launches from Lebanon toward IDF posts in the area of Shtula were identified. As a result, three IDF soldiers were lightly injured and evacuated to receive medical treatment,” the IDF said.

Later, more shells were fired toward an IDF post in the area of Yiftah, a kibbutz in northern Israel, the IDF said. “In response, IDF artillery struck the sources of the fire,” the IDF said.

Clashes at Israel’s border with Lebanon have raised fears of a wider regional conflict.

Hezbollah — an Iran-backed armed group that is also a regional force in its own right — dominates southern Lebanon. It also operates alongside Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guard Corps in Syria, where the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights separates Israel from Tehran-aligned fighters.
