A roadside bomb hit an Israeli patrol near the frontier with the Golan Heights on Tuesday, the army said, wounding four soldiers in the most serious violence to strike the area since the Syrian conflict began three years ago. Israel said it responded with artillery strikes on Syrian army targets.

Lerner said Israel targeted Syrian positions Tuesday because it holds Syria responsible for all attacks emanating from its territory.

"We view the Syrian army as responsible for the incident," he said. "I can't confirm that it was Hezbollah behind this, but it wouldn't be the first time. Last week there was an incident of explosive devices in the vicinity and we do see increased involvement of Hezbollah in Syria."

The bearded savages know that our fearless leader won’t lift a finger to help Israel, so they are doing what bearded savages always do.

Genius! Hezbollah can bomb Israelis to get the Israelis to bomb Assad’s army!
