Israeli troops shot two Lebanese Hezbollah fighters who tried to plant a bomb on the fence between the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights and Syrian-held territory on Wednesday, the army said.

An army spokeswoman said Israeli intelligence had identified the men as members of Hezbollah, which is helping Syrian President Bashar al-Assad fight a three-year-old rebellion. She had no immediate word on their condition, Reuters reported.
