Two explosive-packed drones were launched by Hezbollah from Lebanon earlier this evening, with the IDF reporting that one was downed by air defenses, while the second struck an area in the Western Galilee.

The drones both crossed into Israeli airspace in the Western Galilee. The IDF says it is investigating why it failed to intercept the second device.

There are no reports of injuries.

Hezbollah in a statement claims to have targeted an Israeli military position near Nahariya with explosive-laden drones.

Rocket alarms were activated in several Western Galilee communities during the incident, due to fears of falling shrapnel following the interception.
