The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has confirmed strikes on Hezbollah’s military targets near the Lebanon border.
This response was triggered by a guided anti-tank missile fired towards the town of Rosh Hanikra on Wednesday, originating from an observation post among the targets hit.
Over the past day, there have been shooting incidents directed at Israel, prompting the retaliatory action.
Amidst the ongoing conflict with Hamas in Gaza, Israel’s northern boundary has witnessed increased tensions. Rockets were launched from Lebanon, targeting northern Israeli towns, with Hezbollah escalating its offensives against various Israeli military outposts.
The IDF reports that nine rockets were fired from Lebanon, triggering alarms in Kiryat Shmona and neighboring regions. Israel’s Iron Dome air defense system intercepted four of these rockets, with one landing in the city without causing harm or damage.
Prior to these rocket alarms, the IDF reported its tank had shelled two anti-tank guided missile launch locations in southern Lebanon, in response to identified threats. After an attack on the town of Metula, a third missile launch site was targeted.
By Wednesday evening, a drone strike was executed by the IDF against a group reportedly launching mortars from Lebanon in the Malkia border area.
