IDF strikes Hezbollah targets in Lebanon, military says

The Israeli military says it attacked military targets of terror organization Hezbollah in the border area with Lebanon.

Among the targets was an military observation post from which a guided anti-tank missile was fired toward the northern town of Rosh Hanikra on Wednesday, the military says.

The Israel Defense Forces adds that the strikes were carried out in response to shooting incidents at Israel over the past day.

Israel’s northern border has been heating up amid the ongoing war with Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Rockets were fired from Lebanon at northern Israel towns, and the Hezbollah terror group attacked several Israeli army posts along the border, as skirmishes on the frontier continued on Wednesday.

According to the IDF, nine rockets were launched from Lebanon, setting off sirens in Kiryat Shmona and several nearby communities. The IDF said four were intercepted by the Iron Dome air defense system.

At least one rocket landed in the northern city, causing no injuries or damage.

Shortly before the rocket sirens, the IDF said one of its tanks shelled two anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) launch positions in southern Lebanon, where the military identified an attempt to carry out an attack.

A third ATGM launch site was struck following a missile attack on the northern town of Metula.

The IDF later Wednesday said it had carried out a drone strike against a terror cell launching mortars from Lebanon at the Malkia area on the border.
