January 29 , 2015
A border clash between Hezbollah militants and Israeli forces left two Israeli soldiers dead, according to media reports.
A Spanish UN peacekeeper was also killed in the exchange of fire on Wednesday, January 28, on Israel’s border with Lebanon.
Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s prime minister, said those responsible “will pay the full price.”
A UN official has stressed on the need for “maximum restraint.”
The clash reportedly started after Israeli military vehicles came under missile attack. Hezbollah said the action was in response to an Israeli air attack that killed six Hezbollah fighters and an Iranian general in Syria.
