The Hezbollah terror group says it fired a number of anti-tank missiles from southern Lebanon at a home in the northern Israeli town of Metula.

In a statement, the terror group says the attack is a response to the death of the mayor of the Lebanese village of Taybeh, Hussein Ali Mansour, who was reported to have been killed in IDF shelling earlier, amid repeated cross-border Hezbollah attacks.

Hezbollah claims the home in Metula that it hit was being used by the IDF.

There are no injuries in the attack.

Metula has largely been evacuated of residents, given the Hezbollah attacks.

The IDF says it is responding with artillery shelling at the source of the fire.
