Two IDF soldiers were killed in the anti-tank missile strike on a military vehicle, the IDF has confirmed.

Seven soldiers were injured and are in light to moderate condition. The families of the casualties have been informed.

Israel shelled southern Lebanon earlier today.

Reuters followed with news that Lebanon fired an anti-tank guided missile at an IDF convoy in northern Israel. Hezbollah has since claimed responsibility for the attack.

"At 11:25 (0925 GMT) this morning, the Quneitra martyrs of the Islamic Resistance (Hezbollah) targeted an Israeli military convoy in the Shebaa Farms composed of several vehicles which was transporting several Zionist soldiers and officers," Hezbollah said in a statement broadcast on the group's Al-Manar television channel, reports AFP.
