The IDF confirms targeting Hezbollah sites deep in Lebanon, near the northeastern town of Zboud, in response to the missile fire carried out by the terror group against the Mount Meron air traffic control base earlier today.

According to the IDF, the strike targeted “a military compound used by Hezbollah’s aerial unit” near Zboud in the Baalbek District, which is more than 110 kilometers (70 miles) from Israel’s border.

The compound included several buildings and a landing pad for drones, the IDF says.

The IDF also says it struck a building and other infrastructure used by Hezbollah in Ayta ash-Shab and Kafr Kila, and an observation post in Maroun al-Ras.
