The Israeli army hit a Hezbollah position on the Lebanese border, in retaliation for a bomb attack targeting Israeli soldiers inside occupied territory at the border. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Sham claimed the attack, however, saying it was against the "Zionist army unit," in its first claim for attacks against Israel. Hezbollah denied any association with Jamal Daftardar, a terrorist suspect linked to the Abdullah Azzam Brigades and the Al Nusrah Front. Two men were arrested for smuggling Syrians into Lebanon. Clashes continued in Tripoli between supporters and opponents of the Assad regime in Syria; five people have been killed so far.
