BEIRUT - Two IDF soldiers whose capture by Hezbollah in 2006 sparked the Second Lebanon War and whose bodies were returned to Israel two years later were killed by Israeli bombardment, a Lebanese minister said on Wednesday.

Hezbollah handed over the bodies of Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev in a prisoner exchange but never said how they died.

Lebanese Health Minister Ali Hassan Khalil, publishing his memoirs of the 2006 war in Lebanon's al-Safir newspaper, quoted a Hezbollah official as saying the two Israelis were killed by Israeli bombing.

"There is another subject which only a very few brothers know about, and which no one other than us will know about later," he quoted Hussein al-Khalil as saying on August 3, 2006, roughly half-way through the conflict.
