Israeli fighter jets struck a site belonging to Hezbollah’s air defense unit in northeastern Lebanon’s Baalbek earlier this evening, the IDF says.

The strike comes as a response to a drone and missile attack carried out by Hezbollah earlier today, wounding 14 soldiers and four civilians.

The IDF says the targeted air defense infrastructure was located north of the city of Baalbek, almost 100 kilometers (60 miles) from the Israeli border.
