The Israel Defense Forces says one of its tanks have shelled two anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) launch positions in southern Lebanon, where the military identified an attempt to carry out an attack.

A third ATGM launch site was struck following an attack on the northern town of Metula.

At the same time, the IDF says projectiles were launched from Lebanon at the contested Mount Dov area.

The incidents come shortly before sirens sounded in Kiryat Shmona and several nearby towns.
