Iraqi al Qaeda claims attack on Mt. Dov Israeli patrol

IDF forces exchanged fire with gunmen in the Mt. Dov sector of the Hermon range Friday night after a roadside bomb was activated against an Israeli border patrol jeep. Three soldiers were taken to hospital with light injuries. The attack was claimed by the ISIS, the Iraqi al Qaeda. Israeli tanks then pounded Hizballah positions in the south Lebanese village of Kila. opposite the northern Israeli town of Metullah. This was the first Israeli-Hizballah military confrontation in eight years.

Lebanese sources, including Hizballah, reported that the IDF shelled a number of villages in the Shebaa farms area (Mt. Dov), and that, in addition to the roadside bomb, a 107mm rocket was fired from Lebanon and hit an IDF position. Mt Dov (Shebaa farms) stands at the northern extremity of the Golan near a key intersection of the Lebanese-Syrian borders.
