The military said that it had hit several locations in Lebanon with artillery, which was followed by the launches at Arab al-Aramshe, Bar’am and Biranit, home to the headquarters of the IDF’s Galilee Division.

Footage posted to social media shows extensive damage to the military base.

The military updated in the afternoon that IDF tanks, a fighter jet and a helicopter also struck Hezbollah terror infrastructure in response to the earlier launches.
