(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to JNS.org) Hezbollah has confirmed that its operatives planted the recent roadside bomb that wounded four Israel Defense Forces soldiers on the Israel-Syria border, reported the Kuwaiti newspaper Al Rai on Thursday. The report quoted senior sources in the Shiite terrorist group as saying that Hezbollah was “ready for war.”
The March 18 border incident left one soldier seriously wounded, while three others suffered light-to-moderate injuries. The Israeli Air Force struck several military targets on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights in response, including artillery batteries and posts, as well as a Syrian Army training facility.
Al Rai further quoted Hezbollah sources as saying the attack came in response to an airstrike that took place on the Lebanese-Syrian border in February, which foreign media sources have attributed to Israel. The official told the Kuwaiti newspaper that the Israeli strike had “crossed a line.”
