Photos distributed by news agencies appear to show that a fire at an alleged Hezbollah weapon depot hit by the Israel Defense Forces yesterday afternoon is still burning after almost 24 hours.

The strikes on two warehouses were carried out after a drone attack hit northern Israel earlier that day, causing no injuries or damage.

Lebanese media reported Israeli airstrikes in the town of Ghaziyeh, on the southern outskirts of Sidon, some 30 kilometers (19 miles) from the northern border.

Lebanon’s state-run National News Agency (NNA) claimed that the strikes targeted a warehouse where tires and electricity generators were manufactured.
