Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Wednesday that Israel should harshly respond to the Hezbollah shelling of IDF convoys near the border with Lebanon.
“The firing of rockets at our soveriegn territory should be responded to harshly and disproportionately, just as China or the US would in similar circumstances,” said Lieberman.
At least eight people were wounded, including IDF soldiers, along Israel’s border with Lebanon Wednesday noon after Hezbollah fire hit Israel. Meanwhile, residents of the north were told to stay indoors.
Mortars later hit Mt. Hermon in an attack which Hezbollah says is a response to the IDF’s attack in Syria, which in turn was also a response to rockets fired by Hezbollah at Israel from Syria on Tuesday.
The attack took place near the Har-Dov area, in proximity to the Arab village of Ghajar. The IDF is looking into the possibility that the missile shooting was part of a hijacking attempt.
