JERUSALEM (AP) — The Israeli military says several soldiers have been wounded by a bomb in the Golan Heights along the Syrian frontier.

The military gave no additional details on Tuesday’s incident. But Israeli TV stations described it as a roadside bomb that struck a military jeep as it was conducting a patrol, to which Israel responded with artillery fire. The reports said three soldiers were wounded in the bombing, one seriously.

The incident comes days after a roadside bomb exploded along Israel’s border with Lebanon. Israel blamed Hezbollah militants for the attack and fired at Hezbollah positions across the border.
