Events unfolded quickly and are ongoing, Wednesday January 28, 2015 and were reminiscent of the 2006 Lebanon War between Hezbollah and Israel. The 2006 conflict started in similar circumstances with attacks on border towns used as way to attack military convoys.
One report said 15 Israeli soldiers were injured in an attack by Hezbollah.
Israel began responding to Hezbollah's attack within minutes and fired artillery shells into Lebanon shortly after the attack.
The Israeli Air Force began flying sorties in northern Israel as well, and private flights were grounded.
Reports said Israeli military confirmed four soldiers were injured on the Israeli side. AP quoted Lebanese officials said the shelling targeted the border villages of Majidiyeh, Abbasiyeh and Kfar Chouba.
PM Netanyahu adressed media: “At this moment, the IDF is responding to events in the North.”
"I suggest that all those who are challenging us on our northern border, look at what happened in Gaza, not far from the city of Sderot.
"Hamas suffered the most serious blow since it was founded this past summer and the IDF is prepared to act on every front."
