SIDON, Lebanon: Six Nepalese soldiers serving with U.N. peacekeepers were injured Monday when their vehicle skidded off a road during rainfall in the south of the country.

Security sources said the traffic accident took place Monday morning on the Shaqra-Houla road in the border region of Marjayoun, south Lebanon.

Witnesses said the driver’s wisdom saved his colleagues from crashing into a valley planted with landmines left by the Israeli army before pulling out of south Lebanon in August 2006.

Lebanon and Israel fought a month-long war between July and August 2006.

The injured soldiers were taken to a local hospital for treatment.
