At least 17 Israelis killed in Hezbollah's retaliation

TEHRAN, Jan. 28 (MNA) – After an anti-tank missile hit an Israeli military vehicle near the Israeli-Lebanese border Wednesday, Israel fired 25 artillery shells into Lebanon.

Lebanese security officials say Israel fired 25 artillery shells into areas southeastern Lebanon. There was no immediate word on casualties.

There have been reports of clashes near Lebanese borders. Clashes erupted on Wednesday when Hezbollah's anti-tank missile hit an Israeli vehicle near Mount Dov and Shebaa Farms, a disputed tract of land where the borders of Israel, Lebanon and Syria meet. Several Israeli soldiers have been reportedly killed and injured.

The violence came just hours after the Israeli army confirmed that its warplanes hit artillery posts and territory controlled by the Syrian army.

Tel Aviv confirmed the attack was in response to rockets fired from Israeli occupied Golan Height. Last week Israeli aircraft attacked the territory without provocation and killed an Iranian general and several Hezbollah fighters.
