JNS.org – Hezbollah has confirmed that its operatives planted the recent roadside bomb that wounded four Israel Defense Forces soldiers on the Israel-Syria border, reported the Kuwaiti newspaper Al Rai on Thursday.

The report quoted senior sources in the Shiite terrorist group as saying that Hezbollah was “ready for war.”

The March 18 border incident left one soldier seriously wounded, while three others suffered light-to-moderate injuries. The Israeli Air Force struck several military targets on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights in response, including artillery batteries and posts, as well as a Syrian Army training facility.

Al Rai further quoted Hezbollah sources as saying the attack came in response to an airstrike that took place on the Lebanese-Syrian border in February, which foreign media sources have attributed to Israel. The official told the Kuwaiti newspaper that the Israeli strike had “crossed a line.”
