Israeli Soldier Dies After IDF Conducts Raid on Hezbollah Stronghold

BEIRUT, Lebanon — Hezbollah fighters battled Israeli commandos who launched a raid near the militants' stronghold deep inside Lebanon early Saturday, killing one soldier, in what Lebanon called the first large-scale violation of the U.N.-brokered cease-fire between the sides.

Israel said the pre-dawn assault outside the eastern town of Baalbek was aimed at disrupting arms smuggling to Hezbollah from Iran and Syria.

I'm shocked!
