According to the Associated Press, an Israeli shell landed on a group of international journalists who were covering clashes at Israel’s border. In the collateral damage, one person was killed and six others were injured.
Hezbollah, a terrorist group in Lebanon, said that it had targeted Israeli military positions on the border as Israel waged war against Hamas, a Palestinian terror group to the south. Israeli Defense Forces responded with artillery and tank fire to the fire coming from Lebanon.
