United Nations peacekeepers deployed in south Lebanon are convinced that Israel deliberately targeted one of their positions as “punishment” for failing to adequately deter Hezbollah from carrying out an attack that left two Israeli troops dead, the Lebanese English-language newspaper Daily Star is reporting on Friday.

The Israeli artillery strike, which was launched in retaliation to a Hezbollah attack on an IDF convoy in the Har Dov section abutting the Israeli-Lebanese border, resulted in the death of a Spanish peacekeeper.
