Some 40 rockets were launched from Lebanon in two barrages at the Golan Heights a short while ago, according to the military.

Meanwhile, Lebanese media report Israeli airstrikes in southern Lebanon’s Ayta ash-Shab.

The latest exchange of fire comes following IDF strikes on Hezbollah targets deep in Lebanon after the terror group fired an explosive drone at a sensitive military facility in northern Israel, which came after a top Hezbollah field commander was killed in a drone strike.
