4 Israel Soldiers Die in Ambush

MARJAYOUN, Lebanon -- At least four Israeli soldiers were killed and nine wounded Wednesday in a series of Hizbollah attacks deep inside Israel's south Lebanon occupation zone, pro-Israeli militia and security sources said.

Four Israelis were killed and seven wounded, two of them critically, in a Hizbollah ambush on an Israeli convoy heading toward a road where the group earlier set off three bombs, the pro-Israeli militia sources said.

The first bomb explosion seriously wounded two Israeli soldiers.

The blast was followed by heavy Hizbollah rocketing of a barracks housing both Israeli soldiers and allied South Lebanon Army militia forces.
