The Israel Defense Forces will conduct a military drill in the Galilee Panhandle tomorrow morning, which will include artillery fire toward the Mount Dov area on the border with Lebanon.

The military says the exercise is pre-planned.

Explosions are expected to be heard in nearby towns, the IDF adds.

Mount Dov, also known as the Sheba Farms, is a contested area claimed by Israel, Lebanon and Syria.
