The Israel Defense Forces struck Hezbollah terrorists and their infrastructure in Southern Lebanon on Wednesday, the military said in a post on X (formerly Twitter).
“Earlier today, IDF fighter jets and tanks attacked several targets of the Hezbollah terrorist organization,” said the military, adding that forces also “attacked terrorist squads on the Lebanese border.”
Hezbollah-affiliated media said Israel Air Force jets carried out a “series of airstrikes” near the border towns of Naqoura, Beita al-Sha’ab and Al-Bustan in Lebanon.
On Wednesday afternoon, air-raid sirens blared in Rosh Hanikra in the Western Galilee, with the IDF saying “a number of launches” were identified from Lebanon towards “several areas” in Israeli territory.
Several of the projectiles fell short inside Lebanese territory, and no injuries or damage was reported.
On Tuesday, the IDF attacked several terrorist sites in Lebanon in response to rocket fire. The military said two launches were detected, to which it responded by shelling the source of the fire. The rockets hit open fields, causing no injuries or damage.
Also on Tuesday, IDF air defenses intercepted a “suspicious aerial target” that had crossed from Lebanon into Israel, causing sirens to blare in the Western Galilee.
The military said it shot down several additional projectiles launched from Lebanon “towards areas in the Western Galilee.” The IDF responded with artillery shelling towards the source of the fire.
On Monday, Israel Air Force fighter jets struck Hezbollah terrorist targets following launches from Lebanon towards communities in the Western Galilee. Also, an IAF craft struck a Lebanese terrorist cell that had fired towards Moshav Shtula in northern Israel.
Hezbollah has been testing the waters in recent weeks, initiating a series of fire exchanges as the Jewish state fights Hamas terrorists to the south. Since Oct. 7, three Israeli civilians and six IDF soldiers have been killed in attacks on the northern border.
The surge in attacks from Lebanon compels the Jewish state to act and remove the Hezbollah threat from its border, Israeli War Cabinet Minister Benny Gantz told U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken during a phone call on Monday evening.
