Israel Defense Forces troops exchanged heavy fire with Hezbollah militants in the southern Lebanon village of Ayta a-Shab on Saturday afternoon. A number of fierce battles were fought in the village in the past week, and several soldiers were killed by anti-tank missiles fired by Hezbollah.

Earlier Saturday, an IDF engineering corps soldier died of his wounds after sustaining serious injuries from a mortar round that struck vehicle in which he was being transported.

The dead soldier has been identified as Staff Sergeant Or Shachar, 22, from Kibbutz Yad Mordechai.
Another soldier suffered light injuries and was treated at the scene.

The incident occurred near Nabi el-Awadi, which lies near the village of A'taibeh and is situated in the eastern sector of south Lebanon.
