14 Soldiers, 4 Civilians Wounded in Hezbollah Drone Attack on Northern Border Town

Fourteen soldiers and four civilians were wounded as an explosive drone fired from Lebanon struck a community center in the northern border town of Arab al-Aramshe on Wednesday, April 17, medics and the military said.

The victims were taken to Galilee Medical Center in Nahariya, which said that one was listed in critical condition and four were seriously wounded, with the remaining victims being moderately and lightly hurt. According to the IDF, the five listed in critical and serious condition were soldiers. The four civilian victims were all lightly hurt.

Warning sirens did not sound. The IDF was investigating why the alarms were not activated before the strike, and why the drone was not intercepted. A nearby vehicle was also hit in the attack.

Hezbollah claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it targeted a building being used by the Israeli military with guided missiles and explosive-laden drones. Though the town has been largely evacuated, soldiers are stationed there and may have used the building as a gathering space.

The terror group said the attack was a response to the killing of three of its members, including two commanders, in Israeli strikes in southern Lebanon a day earlier. (TOI / VFI News)

“Lord, we pray for the soldiers and civilians who were wounded during the Hezbollah drone strike on Wednesday. We are praying in Yeshua’s name for their quick recovery and we ask that You ensure they will have no permanent damage to their bodies or a distressed mental state due to the attack. We further pray for the terror organization to be dismantled and for their members to be brought to justice and repent for all the heinous crimes they have committed against Israelis, as well as many other nations.”
