A drone launched by Hezbollah from Lebanon struck an area in the Lower Galilee earlier this evening, according to the military.

Hezbollah in a statement claims to have targeted an army base near the Golani Junction, west of Tiberias, and some 35 kilometers from the Lebanon border, with several explosive-laden drones.

It would mark Hezbollah’s deepest strike in Israel amid the war.

Hezbollah says the drone attack is a response to recent Israeli strikes in southern Lebanon that killed members of the terror group.

The IDF says there are no injuries in the attack.
