IDF Soldier Killed by Hezbollah at Israel's northern borderArutz Sheva
The northern border is quiet this morning, following the killing late yesterday afternoon of First Sgt. David Solomonov, 21, of Kfar Saba. A sniper assumed to be from Hizbullah shot him from over the Lebanese border as he was guarding in Metulah. The shots came from a building within a Lebanese village to the south-west of Metullah. Hizbullah denies involvement.
Solomonov, a sniper himself, immigrated to Israel with his family from the United States eight years ago, and was scheduled to complete his army service a week from now.
He is the 15th Israeli to have been killed by Hizbullah since the IDF withdrew from Lebanon 40 months ago.
