BEIRUT (AP) — The leader of Lebanon’s Hezbollah says members of his party were behind last week’s bombing that wounded four Israeli soldiers.

Sheik Hassan Nasrallah said Wednesday that two bombs were detonated by remote control inside Lebanon.

Last Wednesday, the Lebanese army said a group of Israeli soldiers crossed the border into Lebanon and were wounded in an explosion. The army said the force was 400 meters (yards) inside Lebanon.

Israel appeared to dispute where the bombing happened, saying the soldiers were wounded while carrying out routine activities along the border with Lebanon.

Nasrallah told Lebanese television station Al-Mayadeen that the group had information the Israeli force was going to enter Lebanon and planted bombs. He said that when the Israelis “came the bombs were detonated.”
