Anti-tank missile fired from Lebanon struck and killed an Israeli civilian in the northern border town of Mattat.

The man, in his 60s, was treated by Magen David Adom medics who were forced to declare his death.

The IDF confirms the strike and says its forces identified where it originated from and returned fire with combat helicopters, tank and artillery fire. The army adds that it also returned fire to several other locations in southern Lebanon where strikes at Israel originated  from earlier this afternoon.
