The IDF says it struck a launcher used in the Hezbollah rocket barrage from Lebanon on northern Israel.

Dozens of rockets were launched in the attack. The IDF says many of them were intercepted by the Iron Dome air defense system

There are no injuries in the attack, which Hezbollah says was aimed at the IDF’s Kela base.

The IDF says sirens sounded in Kiryat Shmona and nearby communities due to fears of shrapnel from the interceptions falling in the area.

Sirens were also activated on the Home Front Command mobile app in additional areas, the IDF says, apparently referring to the Kela base.

The IDF says it identified one of the rocket launchers in the south Lebanon village of Qalaat Debba and struck it.

Fighter jets also hit another Hezbollah building in Khiam, the IDF adds.
