Hezbollah gunmen killed two Israeli commandos in southern Lebanon. Israel sent special forces to a Lebanese village just over the border from Avivim on Wednesday to flush out a Hezbollah squad hiding in the hilly countryside. Two soldiers, Staff Sgt. Yotam Gilboa, 21, and Staff Sgt. Yonatan Hadasi, were killed in the ensuing clash and at least seven others were wounded.
