Israel appeared hesitant to escalate a standoff with Hezbollah after the party's guerrillas killed at least two soldiers in an ambush in Lebanon's occupied Shebaa Farms Wednesday in response to the Jewish state's deadly strike in Syria last week.Hezbollah fighters attacked an Israeli military convoy in the occupied Shebaa Farms, south Lebanon, killing at least two soldiers and wounding seven.The operation came 10 days after an Israeli airstrike on a Hezbollah convoy in the Syrian town of Qunaitra, in the Golan Heights, killed six Hezbollah fighters and an Iranian Revolutionary Guard general.In the aftermath of the attack, Prime Minister Tammam Salam called on the international community to restrain Israel from carrying out attacks against Lebanon, stressing his government was committed to U.N. Resolution 1701, which put an end to the 2006 war with Israel.Israeli media said that in the wake of the exchange of fire between Hezbollah and the Israeli troops, the Israeli army suspended drilling along the Lebanese border in search for Hezbollah tunnels.
