The IDF acknowledges that a Hezbollah drone launched from Lebanon struck the Northern Command headquarters in Safed.

It says no injuries were caused as a result of the strike.

Footage shows smoke rising from a parking lot in the base. Minor damage was caused to a nearby building.

The IDF says it launched interceptor missiles at several more “aerial targets” that entered Israeli airspace from Lebanon.

It adds that several rockets and missiles were also fired from Lebanon at the Malkia and Yiftah areas on the border.

Meanwhile, the IDF confirms it carried out a series of strikes this morning on Hezbollah targets in southern Lebanon’s Kafr Kila, and a drone-launching squad was hit before it could carry out an attack.
