Israel salutes Lebanon war heroes

Israel cited scores of soldiers for bravery during the Lebanon war.

Military officials on Wednesday announced the names of 142 soldiers who served in last year’s conflict against Hezbollah and would be awarded decorations for courage under fire.

The honors ceremony will take place in September.

Several of the citations are going to soldiers who died in battle and will go to their families.
