The IDF Spokesperson wishes to declare, that, in contrast to the previous announcments in the media regarding reports that the detonation of the roadside bomb in the area of Mt. Dov took place in disputed territory, the attack occurred in Israeli territory, close to a kilometer south of the blue line, which was the final line of the IDF redeployment from Lebanon, as confirmed by the United Nations forces as well as the UN General Secretary.

The claims by the Hizbollah and other bodies that the area is occupied Lebanese territory are not supported by the authorized international bodies.

The Hizbollah, aided by Lebanon and Syria, is attempting to drag the area into conflict. The IDF views these parties as directly responsible for the terrorist attack, and expects them to stop the violence in order for the residents of northern Israel and southern Lebanon to return to a normal way of life.
