The IDF says it carried out airstrikes on several Hezbollah targets in southern Lebanon.

In Kafr Kila, aircraft struck several Hezbollah sites, and in Yaroun, a fighter jet hit infrastructure belonging to the terror group, according to the IDF.

It says troops also shelled areas in southern Lebanon with artillery, presumably to foil planned Hezbollah attacks.

Several missiles and rockets were launched from Lebanon at northern Israel over the past hour, as well as a number of “hostile aerial targets,” according to the IDF.

The IDF says one of the aerial targets was downed by air defenses, and “all the events are now over.”

Meanwhile, Hezbollah confirms the death of Ali Hussein Barji, a senior commander targeted in an alleged Israeli strike earlier today.

Barji, the 158th named Hezbollah member killed in the cross-border clashes since October 8, was behind several drone attacks on northern Israel.
