    Sources in Lebanon also said that the incident was retaliation by the Iranian-backed Hezbollah terror group for the death of one of its fighters in an airstrike in Syria last week that was attributed to Israel.
    Hezbollah denied that the clash ever took place and vowed that its response to the Syria air strike was still to come.
