The IDF confirms striking a vehicle in southern Lebanon’s Naqoura this morning, targeting operatives belonging to the Imam Hossein Division, an Iranian militia that operates alongside Hezbollah.

According to the IDF, the operatives were involved in rocket fire on northern Israel recently.

Arab media reports, citing Lebanese sources, said three people were killed in the strike. One of the men was a weapons technician, a security source in Lebanon told Reuters.

The IDF also says fighter jets carried out strikes on Hezbollah positions in Labbouneh a short while ago, and two more buildings belonging to the terror group in Blida last night.

It publishes footage showing the strike on the vehicle and the Hezbollah compounds.
