The Islamic resistance in Lebanon targeted an Israeli convoy of nine vehicles in occupied Shebaa Farms on Wednesday, killing and injuring a large number of Israeli soldiers.
Media outlets initially reported the operation, saying an anti-tank missile hit a vehicle in the Shebaa Farms.
Israeli Channel 10 pointed out that the Israeli targeted convoy included a number of Israeli military commanders who were inspecting the area.
In details, the resistance could penetrate all the Israeli security measures and ambush a military convoy, launching rocketry shells toward the vehicles.
Hezbollah prepared militarily and logistically for the operation and withdrew its troops safely after carrying out the mission successfully.
Hezbollah claimed the attack, saying that an Israeli convoy was hit, leaving number of casualties.
The attack comes more than a week after an Israeli raid in Quneitra in Syria’s Golan killed six Hezbollah fighters.
"At 11:25 this morning, the Quneitra Heroic Martyrs group, of the Islamic Resistance, targeted an Israeli military convoy in the Shebaa Farms composed of several vehicles transporting Zionist officers and soldiers," a statement released by Hezbollah Media Relations said.
