Editor's note: In its first official statement today, Hezbollah has claimed responsibility for the missile attack on Israeli military near the Israeli-Lebanon border, confirming earlier reports from journalists in the area. Last week, six Hezbollah soldiers were killed when Israel launched airstrikes on the Golan Heights, according to the Associated Press. It's unclear if this attack is retaliation for that one, but today's clashes underscore a recent uptick in activity along the contested borders. - Aaron

Editor's note: The situation is still mostly unclear, but early reports indicate an attack and possible kidnapping attempt on Israel Defense Forces at the Israeli-Lebanese border is underway. It's unclear who launched the attack near the border, and there are unconfirmed reports of IDF soldier injuries. I'm closely monitoring reports from journalists and officials in the region. - Aaron
