News the HP Doesn't Cover: Israeli Soldiers Ambushed

This news is a couple of days old, but incredibly the Huffington Post still hasn't covered it:
The explosion along the Israeli-Lebanon border that left four IDF soldiers wounded Tuesday was in fact a planned Hezbollah ambush, a Lebanese newspaper reported Thursday.
According to Al-Akhbar, which is affiliated with the Shiite terrorist group, Hezbollah prepared two IEDs, each consisting of four small containers filled with iron ball bearings, and detonated them 20 seconds apart as the soldiers crossed into Lebanese soil. The newspaper said that the incident showed the reach of Hezbollah’s intelligence.
“The Israeli force fell into a prepared ambush,” read the Lebanese article. “Apart from the great intelligence secrets that accompanied this confrontation, the enemy now finds himself facing a tough question: How did Hezbollah know about us?”
Israeli officials assessed Wednesday that the explosion would not lead to an escalation along the border, as UN peacekeepers opened an investigation into the incident and asked the IDF for details.
