Challenges Mount on Northern Border

Israel is facing a dangerous situation on its northern border. 

On Jan. 28, Hezbollah terrorists ambushed an Israel Defense Forces (IDF) convoy traveling in unarmored vehicles on a civilian road near the Syrian border. Using Russian-made Kornet anti-tank missiles, the terrorists struck the convoy from nearly three miles away. Two Israeli soldiers were killed and seven were wounded, marking the first IDF casualties on Israel’s northern border in over a year.
