Two IDF soldiers were injured after an IDF engineering vehicle hit a land mine along the Lebanese border near Shtula on Tuesday afternoon.
The mine exploded upon contact.
The incident was not a terrorist attack. The IDF is conducting an investigation into the incident.
The soldiers were transferred to Galilee Medical Center for further treatment, with one in moderate condition and one in light condition.
Recent activity on the Israel-Lebanon border
The incident comes a week after a terrorist crossed into Israel from Lebanon and planted a roadside bomb at Megiddo junction in northern Israel, severely injuring an Israeli citizen. The terrorist was shot and killed after Israeli forces found him near the border with Lebanon after the attack.
Also, a Hezbollah terrorist crossed the Lebanese border into Israel last week and carried out a bombing attack at Megiddo junction. The IDF determined that the infiltrator crossed the border using a ladder.
This is a developing story.
