Hezbollah gunmen killed an Israeli army officer on the Lebanese border. The officer’s jeep was gutted by a roadside bomb Sunday as he patrolled Shebaa Farms, which has been an occasional flashpoint for violence during the past four years.

Terrorists in the Gaza Strip fired rockets into Israel. At least two rockets, believed to have been launched by Hamas, landed around Sderot in southern Israel on Sunday, causing no casualties.
