The Hezbollah terror group claims responsibility for launching explosive-laden drones at northern Israel earlier. Three people were lightly wounded in the attack.

In a statement, Hezbollah claims that it targeted an Iron Dome battery near Beit Hillel, a small farming community, and that members of its crew were killed and wounded.

Hezbollah has made similar claims in recent months, which have been dismissed by the IDF as empty boasts.

The IDF said it was investigating why sirens didn’t sound during the attack.
