The Israel Defense Forces says air defenses intercepted a “suspicious aerial target” — apparently a drone — that entered Israeli airspace from Lebanon.
It says troops are striking Lebanon in response.
The incident set off sirens in the communities of Margaliot and Manara.
Meanwhile, a suspected drone infiltration alarm is sounding in several communities in the Upper Galilee, close to the border with Lebanon.
The alerts are activated in Avivim, Baram, Yir’on, Tzuriel, Peki’in, Zivon, Sdeh Meron School, Hurfeish, Dovev, Jish, Matat, Sassa, Rehaniya, Kerem Ben Zimra, Alma, Dalton, and the Ramat Dalton Industrial Zone.
Incoming rocket sirens also sound in Yir’on and Jish.
The alerts come amid repeated attacks by the Hezbollah terror group and allied Palestinian factions, though there have also been several false alarms.
