Israeli soldiers stand guard in Rosh Hanikra, Israel, near the border between northern Israel and Lebanon, Monday, Dec. 16, 2013. Israeli troops shot two Lebanese soldiers early on Monday, hours after a Lebanese army sniper killed an Israeli soldier as he drove along the volatile border late at night, the Israeli military said. The shootings raised the possibility of renewed fighting in the area, which has remained mostly quiet since a month-long war in the summer of 2006. (AP Photo/Ariel Schalit)
