Hezbollah claims responsibility for launching heavy “Burkan” rockets at a military base adjacent to Kiryat Shmona a short while ago.

According to the Kiryat Shmona municipality, heavy damage was caused to infrastructure, property, and vehicles in the area.

The IDF says no injuries were caused in the attack, and a short while after, it struck and destroyed the rocket launcher used to launch the two projectiles with heavy warheads.

This morning, the IDF says it also struck two Hezbollah operatives who were spotted in southern Lebanon’s Majdel Selm.
