Lebanon’s Shiite Hezbollah movement on Tuesday afternoon claimed a bomb attack against Israeli troops along the border that wounded two soldiers earlier in the day.

Hezbollah operatives “detonated an explosive device on the Shebaa hills against a motorized Israeli patrol causing a number of injuries among the occupation’s soldiers,” the group said in a statement.

The statement said that the bomb was planted in honor of Hussein Ali Haidar, a Hezbollah member who was killed in a September 5 explosion that Lebanese officials claimed was caused when Israel destroyed one of its own surveillance devices that had been uncovered inside Lebanon.

The explosion, in the contested Shebaa Farms area, also known as Har Dov, set off the second border clash in the area in three days.

The army said in a statement that the bomb was “activated against them during activity along the Israel-Lebanon border.”

“Initial reports indicate that the explosive device was planted with the intent to attack soldiers,” the statement read.

Israel responded by shelling an area next to Kfar Chouba, near the Shebaa Farms region. In all, the Israeli army reportedly fired dozens of shells into Lebanese territory.

One soldier was moderately wounded and the second lightly injured, the Ynet news outlet reported.
