Terrorists in Lebanon fired barrages of rockets towards northern Israel on Sunday morning, lightly injuring one Israeli, local media reported.

Iran-backed Hezbollah launched two rockets at Moshav Dovev in the Eastern Galilee, with the projectiles striking open areas. No casualties were reported. No warning sirens sounded during the attack.

Earlier in the morning, air raid sirens sounded in communities in the Western Galilee near the Lebanese border, including Shlomi and Rosh HaNikra.

Hamas in Lebanon claimed in a statement that it had launched 20 Russian-made Grad rockets towards an Israeli army position near Moshav Shomera.

A 36-year-old man was lightly wounded in the Rosh Hankara area as a result of being hit by the tip of a rocket. He was evacuated to Galilee Medical Center in Nahariya.

Overnight Saturday, Israeli Air Force fighter jets struck several Hezbollah terrorist targets in Lebanon, including an observation post in the area of Odaisseh and two military structures in the area of Khiam, the military said on Sunday morning.

During one of the strikes, a terrorist was identified operating inside a Hezbollah “military” structure in the area of Tayr Harfa. Shortly thereafter, IAF fighter jets struck and destroyed the structure.

On Saturday night, IDF soldiers detected several terrorists in a Hezbollah “military” structure in the area of Jibbain in Southern Lebanon. IAF aircraft then struck the terrorist infrastructure.

Earlier on Saturday, IAF aircraft killed a Hezbollah terrorist and struck the compound that he had entered in the area of Ayta ash Shab. Additionally, IAF aircraft struck a terrorist who was operating in Hezbollah infrastructure in the area of Kfarkela (aka Kafr Kila), also in Southern Lebanon.

Terrorists fired projectiles from Lebanon at northern Israel throughout Saturday.

Nearly 20 people, most of them Israeli soldiers, were injured last week when a Hezbollah rocket hit a community center in Arab al-Aramshe in the Western Galilee.

Air-raid sirens were not activated in the Bedouin border village.

One of the victims was seriously wounded and was fighting for his life after undergoing surgery at Galilee Medical Center.

Nineteen victims underwent treatment in the hospital, including three in serious but stable condition.

Tehran’s terrorist proxy in Lebanon has carried out near-daily attacks on Israel’s mostly evacuated northern border region since joining the war in support of Hamas a day after the latter’s Oct. 7 invasion of the northwestern Negev.
