Hezbollah Brings Roadside Bomb to an Israeli Fighter Plane Fight

It looks like Hezbollah was behind a roadside bomb in Israel yesterday that wounded some soldiers in the Golan Heights. So in retaliation, Israel struck Syria today:

Four Israeli paratroopers were injured Tuesday when the bomb exploded under their patrol jeep in the Golan Heights, near the frontier between Israel and Syria, the Israel Defense Forces said...

Israeli forces responded to the blast with artillery fire aimed at Syrian military targets across the frontier, it said. This was followed by airstrikes early Wednesday....

A statement from the Syrian army command, broadcast by Syrian state TV, said one soldier was killed and seven others injured in Israeli airstrikes on a checkpoint in the Quneitra area.
