9 Iranian actors wounded in south Lebanon


Central News Agency ( CNA) has revealed that 9 Iranian actors were wounded in Ansariyeh , in South lebanon during the production of a film about the 2006 war between Israel and Hezbollah.

According to CNA a nearby war tank exploded during the filming of one of the scenes .

All the wounded were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment

The story of the film is set in the border village of Aita el Shaab, from which Hezbollah fighters crossed into Israel and captured two soldiers in a deadly raid in 2006.

The attack provoked a devastating 33 day Israeli offensive against Hezbollah strongholds in south Lebanon and Beirut’s southern suburb in which over 1,200 Lebanese and more than 160 Israelis were killed. Most of the lebanese that were killed were civilians while the Israelis were mostly military

The film could not be shot in Aita el Shaab because of the instability of the border area.

Instead, a replica of the village was constructed in Ansariyeh, 30 km (18 miles) north of the border.
