The IDF says a drone that struck an open area near the northern community of Arbel is likely not an Israeli military drone, indicating it may have been launched from Lebanon by Hezbollah.

“The circumstances of the incident are under investigation,” the IDF says.

The IDF also says it struck several Hezbollah positions in southern Lebanon’s Dhayra a short while ago.

It adds that yesterday, the 869th Combat Intelligence Collection Unit spotted a Hezbollah operative entering a building in Ayta ash-Shab, and called in an airstrike.

Over the past day, the IDF says it also struck rocket launching positions in Aitaroun and other Hezbollah infrastructure in Odaisseh.
