Hizballah’s Hassan Nasrallah claimed that his forces carried out a roadside bomb ambush on an Israeli military patrol on Mt. Dov last month in retaliation for an Israeli air bombardment in February on arms convoys crossing the Syrian-Lebanese borders. Nasrallah added mockingly: Israel “got the message … It's all about deterrence.” The Israel patrol survived the attack without injuries and went on to pound Hizballah positions across the border.
