Suspected drone infiltration alarms are activated in several communities in the Upper Galilee, close to the Lebanon border.

The sirens sound in Yir’on, Malkia, Dishon, Ramot Naftali, Baram, Yiftah, Avivim, Alma, Jish, Rehaniya, Kerem Ben Zimra, Dalton, and the Ramat Dalton Industrial Zone.

The Hezbollah terror group has carried out several attacks on northern Israel using explosive-laden drones, though there have also been numerous false alarms.

The alert comes after a series of large-scale Israeli strikes on southern Lebanon, which Hezbollah has vowed to avenge.

Moments after the sirens sound, the IDF Home Front Command says the incident is over, without elaborating further.
