Lebanese Foreign Minister Abdallah Bouhabib says his government has received assurances from Hezbollah that it will not join the fighting unless Israel “harasses” Lebanon.

Yesterday morning, Hezbollah launched mortar shells at Israeli military sites on the Lebanon border, as fighting continued in southern Israel.

The Iranian-backed terror group claimed to have fired dozens of rockets and shells at three Israeli positions in the contested Mount Dov region in solidarity with the Hamas attack.

The Lebanese group said in a statement that the attack, using “large numbers of rockets and shells,” was in solidarity with the “Palestinian resistance.” It claimed the Israeli positions were directly hit.

The Israel Defense Forces did not report any injuries, and said it responded with artillery fire toward the area of the launches and a drone strike against “Hezbollah infrastructure” in the area.

According to a military source, the site targeted in the drone strike was a tent the terror group set up in Israeli territory months ago.
