Hezbollah attack on Israeli military, Jan. 28, 2015

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
