The Israeli military on Thursday morning intercepted a “suspicious aerial target” that crossed into Israeli territory from Lebanon, triggering red alerts in northern communities.

Sirens sounded in the border towns of Dovev, Matat and Sassa due to a suspected drone infiltration. Another alarm in Dovev warned of an incoming rocket or missile attack.

The Home Front Command confirmed that the incident had ended.

The sirens were the first heard anywhere in Israel since Saturday.

The IDF shelled targets in southern Lebanon on Tuesday, Reuters reported, citing Lebanese state media.

Hezbollah terrorists carried out daily attacks on Israel in the aftermath of Hamas’s Oct. 7 assault, but the border has been mostly quiet since a ceasefire agreement between Israel and Hamas was reached on Nov. 24.
