The Israel Defense Forces says it has carried out a drone strike against another cell in southern Lebanon, preparing to carry out an anti-tank guided missile attack against the northern community of Zar’it.

The strike marks the third cell the IDF has struck in southern Lebanon today, amid repeated missile and rocket attacks by the Hezbollah terror group.

The IDF publishes footage of the strike.

Separately, the IDF says a drone approaching Israeli airspace from Lebanon was intercepted by the Iron Dome air defense system.

Hezbollah also launched another anti-tank guided missile attack on IDF surveillance equipment at a military post near the northern communities of Manara and Margaliot.

The IDF says it is responding with artillery shelling at the source of the fire.
