Israeli fighter jets struck Hezbollah rocket launchers in southern Lebanon that were used in a barrage earlier today on the Mount Meron area in northern Israel, the military says.

The IDF releases footage of the strike.

Meanwhile, Hezbollah claims attacks on Kiryat Shmona and other nearby communities launched about 90 minutes ago, saying it fired “dozens of Katyushas” and other types of projectiles.

It says the attack on Kiryat Shmona is in retaliation for what it describes as an Israeli attack on a hospital in Bint Jbeil in southern Lebanon.
