Whoever decided to “test” Israel by perpetrating the roadside bombing in the country’s northern region will pay dearly, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant said on Thursday, during a visit to the Lebanese border.

Gallant visited the IDF’s northern Home Front Command and was apprised on the investigation’s latest findings.

The IDF said that the bomb, which seriously wounded an Israeli Arab civilian, was planted by a terrorist who crossed the border from Lebanon. The suspected terrorist was killed by security forces in a shoot-out, hours after the attack.

Israeli officials said the roadside bomb was “completely different” than the ones usually seen by Israeli forces being used in Yehudah and Shomron, but officials have not divulged how the bombs were different.

Officials are also investigating the involvement of the terrorist organization Hezbollah in relation to the bombing.
