Israeli Media: Hizbullah Proved Capability to Hit Targets Inside Israel
Israeli media reportedly said on Tuesday that Hizbullah has proven capability of targeting positions inside Israel sought to be safe by its army, Israeli Channel 12 said.
“Hizbullah proved capable of firing at roads that were considered safe in northern Israel,” Channel 12 said in the aftermath of Sunday’s Lebanese-Israeli border fire flare.
“The (Israeli) soldiers did not properly plan the route and estimated that they are not exposed to the enemy behind the border,” said the Channel.
On Sunday, Hizbullah said its fighters had "destroyed" a military vehicle on the road to the Avivim barracks in northern Israel, killing or wounding those inside.
Israel's army said it had responded with around 100 artillery shells after Hizbullah fired two or three anti-tank missiles at a battalion headquarters and military ambulance, hitting both.
Israeli officials refuted claims of casualties.
The Israeli Channel concluded its report saying “the Kornet guided missile fired by Hizbullah has hit the military vehicles and soldiers were luckily saved.”
