Lebanese Shiite militant group Hezbollah confirmed responsibility on Wednesday for an attack against a military convoy in an Israeli-occupied border area.

"At 11:25 (0925 GMT) this morning, the Quneitra martyrs of the Islamic Resistance (Hezbollah) targeted an Israeli military convoy in the Shebaa Farms composed of several vehicles which was transporting several Zionist soldiers and officers," Hezbollah said in a statement broadcast on the group's Al-Manar television channel.

"There were several casualties in the enemy's ranks," it said.
