Israel Army Vehicle Hit by Missile as Northern Frontier Heats Up

Wednesday, 28 Jan 2015 06:23 AM

(Bloomberg) -- An anti-tank missile struck an Israeli military vehicle traveling along the northern frontier, the army said, hours after Israeli jets hit Syrian army positions in retaliation for rocket fire.

The Ynet news website reported that four soldiers were wounded in the attack in the disputed Chebaa Farms area. The Israeli military declined to comment on casualties.

Tensions have heated up in Israel’s northern frontier since a Jan. 18 airstrike killed an Iranian general and six members of the Iranian-backed Hezbollah militia in Syria. Hezbollah and Iran blamed Israel for the attack.

Israel captured the Chebaa Farms when it seized Syria’s Golan Heights in the 1967 Middle East War. The United Nations has determined that the area -- a piece of land of about 25 square miles where the Syrian, Israeli and Lebanese borders meet -- is Syrian. Lebanon also claims the area as part of its territories.
