Rocket alert sirens sounding in northern towns near Lebanon border

Rocket alert sirens are sounding in northern communities near the border with Lebanon.

Sirens can be heard in the largely evacuated towns of Dishon, Malkia, Iftach, Mevuot Hermon Regional Council and Ramot Naftali.

Since October 8, Hezbollah-led forces have attacked Israeli communities and military posts along the border on a near-daily basis, with the group saying it is doing so to support Gaza amid the war there.

So far, the skirmishes on the border have resulted in 10 civilian deaths on the Israeli side, as well as the deaths of 15 IDF soldiers and reservists. There have also been several attacks from Syria, without any injuries.

Hezbollah has named 349 members who have been killed by Israel during the ongoing skirmishes, mostly in Lebanon but some also in Syria. In Lebanon, another 64 operatives from other terror groups, a Lebanese soldier, and dozens of civilians have been killed.
