A man around 30 years of age was critically wounded by a drone fired from Lebanon near Kibbutz Kabri in the Western Galilee on Thursday.

The Hezbollah strike was part of a massive drone and rocket barrage fired at northern Israel.

Magen David Adom paramedics arrived to treat the victim.

Hezbollah took responsibility for the attack, saying that it was “in response to Israeli attacks in Southern Lebanon,” and aimed at the IDF’s Malikia post.

“Following the sirens that sounded in the Western Galilee area in the past hour, several UAVs were identified crossing from Lebanon into Israeli territory and they fell in the Western Galilee area,” the IDF said.

“In addition, following the sirens that sounded at 10:41 in the Upper Galilee area, a number of suspicious aerial targets were identified from Lebanon towards Israeli territory and they were successfully intercepted by the IDF Aerial Defense Array,” the army continued.

Kabri is around 2.5 miles east of the Mediterranean seaside city of Nahariya.

Later on Thursday afternoon, the IDF confirmed it intercepted more drones from Lebanon. The UAVs did not cross the border and, accordingly, no air-raid sirens were activated, the army added.

Al-Akhbar, a Lebanese daily affiliated with Hezbollah, reported that IDF artillery attacked in the areas of Naqoura, Alma al-Shaab, Tir Harfa, Al-Dahira, Wadi Saluki and Baraachit, all in Southern Lebanon.

A separate report by Hezbollah’s Al-Mayadeen network said Israeli Air Force jets were flying at low altitude over Lebanon to search for UAVs.

On Tuesday night, two Israelis were killed in a Hezbollah rocket barrage fired at the Golan Heights.

The victims were identified on Wednesday as Noa and Nir Barnes, both aged 46, a couple from Kibbutz Ortal and the parents of three children. They were driving home when their vehicle was struck.

Hezbollah has attacked the Jewish state’s north nearly every day since Oct. 8, firing thousands of drones, rockets and anti-tank missiles at Israeli towns, killing more than 20 people and causing widespread damage.

Nasrallah has vowed to continue the attacks until a “complete and permanent ceasefire” is reached with Hamas terrorists in Gaza.
