Two Indian UN Peacekeepers were wounded today when an Israeli airstrike hit near their border post in southern Lebanon, a spokesman said.

The two soldiers from the Indian battalion of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon were "moderately wounded as a result of the impact of an aerial bomb that hit in the vicinity" of their position in the borded village of Adaisseh, UNIFIL spokesman Milos Strugar said.

The two soldiers were evacuated to a UNIFIL hospital in the town of Ibl Saqi.

Strugar said the observation tower inside the position was damaged.

Four officers with the UN Observer force in south Lebanon were killed in an Israeli airstrike that destroyed their bunker in southern Lebanon last week.
