According to the IDF, the al-Jama’a al-Islamiyya cell that was targeted in an airstrike in southern Lebanon’s Habbariyeh overnight planned an infiltration attack on the border.

All seven killed in the strike were members of the terror group, according to the military.

In response to the strike, Hezbollah fired a barrage of some 30 rockets at Kiryat Shmona, killing an Israeli civilian.
