The IDF says it struck a Hezbollah cell in southern Lebanon, and a fighter jet hit a site belonging to the terror group.

The airstrike comes amid repeated cross-border attacks carried out by Hezbollah, after a top Hamas terrorist in Lebanon was killed in an airstrike a day ago.

The IDF says several missiles were fired from Lebanon at northern Israel in the last few hours, and troops are shelling the launch sites with artillery.

Hezbollah claims two attacks on the border today so far, near Shlomi and Zar’it.

The terror group also announces the deaths of two more members, killed in an Israeli strike yesterday.

Since October 8, at least 140 Hezbollah members have been killed, mostly in south Lebanon, but some also in Syria.
