Israeli fighter jets a short while ago struck a Hezbollah rocket launching position in southern Lebanon that was used to fire some of the estimated 40 projectiles at the Golan Heights this morning.

The IDF says no injuries were caused in the rocket barrage, which Hezbollah claims targeted three military bases.

Some of the 40 rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome system, the military says.

Meanwhile, a building where Hezbollah operatives were gathered in southern Lebanon’s Ayta ash-Shab, and another building in Halta, have been struck, the IDF says.

The military also says that repeated sirens that sounded in the northern border community of Zar’it were triggered by five projectiles launched from Lebanon. No injuries were caused in the attack, according to the IDF.
