Things are now starting to heat up on the norther border. The Israel Defense Forces said two mortars were fired at northern Israel and that troops killed two gunmen who infiltrated into Israeli territory from Lebanon on Monday afternoon, as fighting continued in southern Israel in the wake of a major attack launched by the Palestinian Hamas terror group in the Gaza Strip.
Six Israelis were said to have been injured in the northern clashes, including one critically and one seriously.
