An Israelis soldier was lightly wounded in southern Lebanon on Saturday night by a land mine that exploded.

The soldier, who was not identified, was flown by helicopter to Rambam Hospital in Haifa, after receiving on-site first aid treatment.

The incident occurred while the soldier was on routine patrol in the eastern sector of the border security zone.

Sources in southern Lebanon said it was likely the mine had been planted by the extremist Shiite group Hezbollah, in retaliation for recent operations conducted north of the security zone by the Israeli-backed South Lebanon Army.
