Despite its preoccupation with the Syria crisis Hezbollah claimed responsibility for planting a bomb that wounded two Israeli soldiers on the south Lebanon border Tuesday, two days after a Lebanese soldier was wounded by Israeli fire in the area.When asked why Hezbollah swiftly claimed responsibility for the operation, Qassem said the move was meant to express Hezbollah's readiness to counter any breach carried out by the Israeli army.In an implicit warning to the Israeli forces, the Hezbollah official said that the resistance was capable of planting explosives in areas monitored by Israeli forces. The Israeli army confirmed the incident, saying that two soldiers had been wounded in the blast.Within minutes of Hezbollah claiming responsibility for the blast, the Israeli army tweeted that it had fired artillery at two Hezbollah posts along the border.
