The IDF says it carried out a series of strikes against Hezbollah targets in southern Lebanon, including an airstrip used by the terror group in the Qalaat Jabbour mountain region.
The IDF says it also struck targets in the areas of Tyre and Mghairiyeh.
The airstrip, revealed by Defense Minister Yoav Gallant last year, served Hezbollah’s aerial unit, according to the IDF. Israel accused Iran of building the runway, which is thought to be used by the terror group to launch drones.
The IDF says the strikes come in response to a drone attack on northern Israel earlier today, which has now been claimed by Hezbollah.
The terror group launched two explosive-laden drones from Lebanon, which impacted open areas near the northern Israeli community of Kfar Blum, causing no injuries or damage.
Hezbollah claimed it targeted an Iron Dome air defense system battery.
The IDF also says it shelled areas in southern Lebanon with artillery today, apparently to foil planned Hezbollah attacks.
