Israel’s defense minister warned of retaliation after Hezbollah gunmen fired from Lebanon at an Israeli army outpost on the border early Monday. “We have great interest in a quiet border between us and the Lebanese,” Benjamin Ben-Eliezer told Israel Radio. “But let there be no misunderstanding. I hope that we will not need to prove to Hezbollah the strength of the Israeli Defense Force.” Later Monday, a U.N. official in Lebanon said the shooting at the army outpost was part of a Hezbollah attempt to infiltrate Israel.
