At least two Israeli soldiers were killed and seven others injured today when a missile fired by the Lebanese Hezbollah group hit an army convoy, promoting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to threaten strong retaliation similar to the one carried out in Gaza last year.
An Israeli attack which killed several prominent members of Lebanon`s Hezbollah last week was an attempt by Israel to set "new rules" in the conflict between the two foes, Hezbollah`s deputy leader said at a gathering to commemorate those who died.
Israeli Defence Minister Moshe Yaalon said on Friday that the country was prepared for any retaliation by Hezbollah, after it carried out a deadly air strike in Syria against the Lebanese Shiite militant group.
UN peacekeepers stationed in the Golan Heights along the Syrian-Israeli border observed drones coming from the Israeli side before and after an airstrike that killed top several Hezbollah figures, the United Nations said on Monday.
Hezbollah supporters turned out in force on Monday to bury the son of the group`s late commander, one of six fighters who died in an Israeli air strike in neighbouring Syria that also killed an Iranian general.
An Israeli strike in southern Syria today killed the son of a slain top Hezbollah commander and four other fighters from the Lebanese Shiite militant group, which has been fighting alongside Syrian government forces, an official said.
Lebanon`s powerful Hezbollah movement on Wednesday blasted French weekly Charlie Hebdo`s new cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad as "very offensive", warning it will lead to more "terrorism and extremism".
In what may sound bizarre to many, the leader of the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah has condemned the attack on the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, stating that the Islamist terror outfits have offended the Islam and Prophet Mohammed more than the cartoons mocking them, reports claimed on Saturday.
