Israel said to carry out drone strike 40 km inside Lebanon

Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent

Earlier this morning, Lebanese media outlets reported that an IDF drone struck a truck near the coastal village of al-Zahrani, some 40 kilometers from the Israeli border, just south of Sidon.

There were no reports of injuries in the strike.

The IDF had said it had carried out a strike on a site from which surface-to-air missiles were fired at military drones over the Israel-Lebanon border, without specifying the exact location.

Army radio reports that the two strikes are the same incident, marking the deepest Israeli strike in Lebanon since hostilities ramped up after Hamas’s October 7 onslaught.
