The Israel Defense Forces says air defenses intercepted a “suspicious aerial target” over Lebanese airspace a short while ago.

Meanwhile, a number of rockets were fired at army positions along the Lebanon border.

In response to the rocket attack, the IDF says tanks and aircraft struck several Hezbollah observation posts.

Separately, the IDF says that this morning a military drone made an emergency landing in an open area in northern Israel.

It says the aircraft was not hit by enemy fire, and the incident is being investigated.
