Mortar fire in south Lebanon
Ceasefire agreement breached as Hizbullah terrorists fire four mortar shells toward south Lebanon; no injuries reported. Target may have been IDF soldiers

The ceasefire agreement that went into effect at 8 a.m. Monday was breached early Tuesday when Hizbullah terrorists fired four mortar shells were toward south Lebanon. No injuries were reported in the incident.


The IDF confirmed the report.


IDF forces are still operating inside Lebanese territory, and the mortar fire may have been aimed at them.


Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah has repeatedly threatened in his recent speeches that the fighting will rage on as long as IDF soldiers remain on Lebanese soil.


Israeli security and government officials estimated that Hizbullah would try to attack IDF forces ahead of their expected withdrawal in the coming days.


The ceasefire was upheld throughout most of the day, aside from a few incidents.


At 11:30 a.m. a Hizbullah terrorist tried to open fire at soldiers in the village of Hadata in the western region.


The soldiers fired back and hit him. There were no injuries among the soldiers.


About an hour and a half later, another incident took place between soldiers and Hizbullah gunmen in the village of Randouria in the eastern village. IDF soldiers opened fire at a number of terrorists. One of the terrorists was killed, and there were no injuries among the soldiers.
