BEIRUT: Local and international officials expressed mixed reactions Monday to the news of Israel’s attack on a Hezbollah convoy in Syria a day earlier, as the party began to bury the first of six of its fighters killed in the airstrike.

While some roundly condemned Israel’s attack as an act of terror and aggression, others warned that Hezbollah’s military involvement in the Syrian civil war risked dragging Lebanon into a confrontation it could ill afford.
