The Hezbollah terror group claims to have targeted the headquarters of the Upper Galilee Regional Council in Kiryat Shmona with two drones earlier today.

The IDF said it intercepted one aerial target over northern Israel, and there are no reports that the council’s headquarters was hit.

Hezbollah says the attack is a response to recent Israeli strikes on “southern villages and civilian homes” including yesterday’s strike on what it says is a civil defense center in Blida.

The IDF said the strike on Blida targeted a building where Hezbollah operatives were gathered. The three slain Hezbollah members announced by the terror group this morning are believed to have been killed in that strike.
