Two Israeli soldiers captured seven killed in Hezbollah attack BEIRUT: Heavy clashes erupted in southern Lebanon on Wednesday as Hezbollah announced that guerrillas have captured two Israeli soldiers along the border with Israel. Hezbollah's TV said the militia had killed seven Israeli soldiers and wounded several in the cross-border fighting. Two Lebanon civilians were killed in Israeli offensive in Lebanon. This morning, the Hezbollah captured two Israeli soldiers near the border with occupied Palestine, and the captives have been moved to a safe area,'' the Hezbollah said in a statement. It said the captures were made to implement its promise to obtain the freedom of prisoners jailed in Israel. Israel's Defense Ministry confirmed Israeli soldiers were captured. The Israeli army confirmed casualties among the soldiers, but did not comment the reports of possible deaths. The military, meanwhile, ordered residents of Israeli towns along the northern border to seek cover in underground bomb-shelters. Israeli aircrafts struck roads, bridges and Hezbollah guerrilla positions in southern Lebanon, Lebanese security officials said. Israeli jets flew over Sidon and nearby areas and Lebanese army anti-aircraft opened up at them, the Lebanese officials said. Three bridges were damaged, the officials said. The guerrillas who attacked Israel's northern border will pay a ``heavy price'' for their actions, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said. ``There are people ... who are trying to test our resolve,'' he said. ``They will fail and they will pay a heavy price for their actions,'' he said. Hezbollah's TV station reported that Israeli artillery was pounding the fringes of the villages of Aita el-Shaab, Ramieh and Yaroun in the hills east of the coastal border port of Naqoura.
