We are aware of reports of an explosive device detonated in the Shebaa Hills area of Israel on 7 October, which injured two Israeli soldiers. Hizballah has claimed responsibility for the attack. The Israel Defense Forces responded with artillery fire into Lebanon. We call on all sides to cease hostilities and honour United Nations Security Council Resolution 1701.
