IDF flares light up Lebanese border area, Lebanese media say

Lebanese media report the Israel Defense Forces has launched flares over the contested Shebaa Farms area along the Israel-Lebanon border, amid heightened tensions between the Jewish state and the Lebanese Hezbollah terror group.

Shebaa Farms, known by Israel as Har Dov, is a disputed region along the border that was the site of a deadly anti-tank missile attack by Hezbollah against Israeli troops in 2015, in which two soldiers were killed and seven were wounded.

The area is on high alert after Hezbollah’s leader Hassan Nasrallah said yesterday his group would retaliate for strikes in recent days against Hezbollah targets in Syria and Lebanon attributed to Israel.
