An IDF soldier was killed today at noon from an anti-tank missile fired towards an IDF force on an operational mission near an IDF post in Har-Dov region on the Israeli-Lebanese border. The family of the casualty has been notified.

As a response, IAF combat airplanes and IDF artillery attacked Hizbullah targets from which the missile was ired, north of Har-Dov. All of our planes returned safely to their base.

The IDF Spokesperson emphasies that the IDF regards the fire at Israeli territory as a severe violation of the UN 425 decision after Israel’s redeployment on the international border line.
