Four IDF soldiers were wounded, one of them seriously, as a result of a blast on the Lebanon border overnight.

The military says the incident took place during “operational activity.” The activity was being carried out by troops of the Golani Brigade’s reconnaissance and elite Yahalom combat engineering unit.

The cause of the blast that wounded the soldiers in the western region of the border with Lebanon is still under investigation.

One soldier was seriously wounded, two were listed in moderate condition, and another was lightly hurt. The troops were taken by helicopter to a hospital.
