9:35 am Israel time: Number of injured soldiers in fighting this morning is nine - all injuried lightly.
8:20 am Israel time: Six IDF soldiers injured in fight in Bent Jebail.
IDF forces, including reserve troops are fighting in Bent Jebail in south Lebanon. A soldier killed in Maroun a Ras was buried in Kiryat Shmona last evening. The time of the funeral was changed at the last minute for fear that Hizballah would fire rockets at the crowd. During the funeral itself the people heard the sounds of the fighting of the IDF and Hizballah just across the border - and now the family is sitting shiva (the seven day mourning period) in a bomb shelter in Kiryat Shmona.
