The report refers to an incident that took place last week when an explosive charge was detonated near a military vehicle driving close to the border with Lebanon.

Following the attack, Israel said Hezbollah fighters, placed the bomb on Friday, at night, March 14, and that an Israeli military convoy driving on the Sheba Farms border area was hit by the bomb.
