Israeli fighter jets struck a series of Hezbollah positions in southern Lebanon a short while ago, the military says.

Several buildings at a Hezbollah military compound in the village of Blat, from which a barrage of rockets was fired at the Upper Galilee this morning, were struck by fighter jets, the IDF says.

The IDF says additional airstrikes were carried out against buildings used by the terror group in Jebbayn, Khiam, Ayta ash-Shab and Tayr Harfa.

Troops also shelled areas near Chebaa with artillery to “remove threats,” the military adds.
