An Israeli civilian was killed and five soldiers were wounded in a Hezbollah anti-tank guided missile attack against the northern community of Adamit earlier today.

The IDF says one soldier was moderately injured and four others were lightly hurt in the attack. Hezbollah claimed responsibility, saying it targeted military positions in the area.

An Israeli civilian near the troops was also wounded, and his death was declared a short while later. He is not immediately named.

The IDF says it struck buildings used by Hezbollah in southern Lebanon’s Ayta ash-Shab and Kafr Kila in response to the attack.
