An explosive-laden drone launched from Lebanon struck the northern community of Beit Hillel this morning, the military and local authorities say.

The IDF says an interceptor missile was launched at the drone, although it failed to intercept the device.

There are no injuries in the incident.

Hezbollah takes responsibility for the drone attack, claiming to have targeted an Israeli military base adjacent to the community.

Meanwhile, fighter jets struck a building and an observation post used by Hezbollah in southern Lebanon’s Kafr Kila last night, the IDF says.

A separate strike targeted a group of Hezbollah operatives in Taybeh, the military adds.
