Israeli fighter jets and artillery forces carried out a wave of strikes against dozens of Hezbollah targets in southern Lebanon, the military says.

According to the IDF, some 40 targets in Ayta ash-Shab were hit by aircraft and artillery shelling within several minutes.

The targets included weapon depots and other assets belonging to Hezbollah, the military says.

The IDF says the strikes are “part of the effort to destroy the organization’s infrastructure in the border area.”

Ayta ash-Shab is used by Hezbollah for “terror” and it places dozens of its sites in the area, the military charges.
