The Israel Defense Forces says it carried out a drone strike against a Hezbollah cell in southern Lebanon preparing to carry out an anti-tank guided missile attack against an army post on the northern border.

In recent days, the IDF has stepped up airstrikes on Hezbollah terrorists planning to carry out missile and rocket attacks on northern Israel.

The terror group has so far named 46 members killed by Israeli strikes in southern Lebanon amid the war in the Gaza Strip. The IDF publishes footage showing the latest strike.
