Israeli soldier injured near Lebanese border

An Israeli soldier has been lightly wounded near the Lebanese border, after what the Israeli army claims was a barrage of rockets from Lebanon.

There has been no independent confirmation from Lebanon - Hizbollah or Palestinian groups are normally quick to claim the credit for such attacks. This atttack was also deep inside Israeli territory - in the town of Safed. No rocket from Lebanon has ever reached that far south.

Lebanese soldiers are frequently hurt by Israeli air raids which illegally cross the border. The Israeli government says it holds the Lebanese government responsible for the attack, and it is normal practise for a bombing raid to follow.
