Israeli fighter jets completed a wave of airstrikes in southern Lebanon a short while ago, targeting a cell and rocket launchers, the military says.

The Hezbollah cell was identified entering a building used by the terror group in Markaba. A short while later the building was struck, according to the IDF.

The IDF says fighter jets also hit four Hezbollah rocket launchers in Chihine, Zibqin, Hanine, and Houla.

Earlier this evening, a Hezbollah barrage of five rockets on the Galilee Panhandle sparked a fire, the military says.

Several more anti-tank guided missiles were launched at Malkia and Misgav Am, causing damage to buildings and sparking another fire in the latter.

The IDF says it shelled the sources of fire with artillery.

Firefighters are working to extinguish the blazes.

Hezbollah has taken responsibility for at least 10 attacks on northern Israel today, claiming to use heavy Falaq-2 rockets for the first time.
