IDF fires artillery after bomb explodes on Lebanese border

A large explosive device detonated near an IDF force at the Lebanese border on Monday afternoon, leading the IDF to fire artillery shells at Hezbollah targets in the area.

The explosion targeted two of the IDF's Caterpillar D9 bulldozers. The IDF has not said whether any soldiers were hurt in the attack.

"We fired artillery at Hezbollah targets near the border," an IDF spokesperson said. "It happened near Nahal Sion." The spokesperson denied there was an attempt at kidnapping soldiers, anti-tank fire, or infiltration of terrorists into Israel.

The Lebanese terror organization Hezbollah claimed responsibility for the attack, which they say was committed by the "Samir Kuntar Brigades."
