Israeli Air Force fighter jets completed an extensive wave of attacks on Hezbollah terrorist infrastructure in Lebanon on Sunday, the military said.
The strikes on military buildings and rocket launching positions, among other targets, were in retaliation for rocket fire on the Israeli town of Shlomi and the Keren Naftali lookout/archaeological site, which also drew immediate artillery fire at the sources of those attacks.
Earlier in the day, the IDF ordered the blocking of several routes in the Upper Galilee. Rocket warning sirens sounded in Moshav Avivim and Kibbutz Yiron on Sunday afternoon.
On Saturday, IDF artillery attacked several sites in Lebanon. Additionally, IAF fighter jets attacked a Hezbollah “military” headquarters.
Also on Saturday, an IDF reserve soldier was moderately wounded by shrapnel from a projectile fired from Lebanon towards the area of Kibbutz Manara.
The IDF announced on Friday that Sgt. Amit Hod Ziv, 19, from the 188th Armored Brigade’s 71st Battalion and Rosh Ha’ayin, was killed and another soldier seriously wounded in a morning Hezbollah rocket attack from Lebanon at the area of Moshav Shtula.
