BEIRUT — An Israeli strike this morning hit a vehicle carrying United Nations observers outside the southern Lebanese border town of Rmeish, two security sources tell Reuters.

There is no immediate comment from the UN peacekeeper mission in southern Lebanon UNIFIL, which accompanies technical observers monitoring the Blue Line, which delineates the border between Lebanon and Israel.

The Israel Defense Forces didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment on the strike, which was first reported by outlets linked to Hezbollah.
