At least two people were injured—one moderately and one lightly—on Monday by an anti-tank missile fired from Lebanon towards the area of Netu’a, a moshav near the border.
Troops responded by firing artillery at the source of the attack, the IDF said.
In addition, IDF jets on Monday attacked a number of targets belonging to the Iran-backed Hezbollah terrorist organization in Southern Lebanon. The IDF said it struck “terrorist infrastructures, compounds where various weapons were stored and an operational headquarters.”
It was cleared for publication on Monday afternoon that an Israeli civilian was killed the previous day by a Hezbollah anti-tank missile attack near Moshav Dovev in the Upper Galilee that also wounded 14 others.
Several of the victims were employees of the Israel Electric Corporation working to repair power lines damaged by previous attacks from Lebanon.
The fatality was named by the Israel Electric Corporation as Shalom Aboudi, a 56-year-old father of two from the northern Israeli city of Tiberias.
“The heart aches and the soul is numb to receive the bitter news about the fall of our friend Shalom Aboudi while he was working to restore the electricity supply to the residents of the north,” said IEC CEO Meir Spiegler. “
Terrorists fired at Netu’a for a second time on Monday as well as an IDF post in Shtula, with the IDF striking the sources of the fire.
Earlier on Monday, mortar shells fired from Lebanon hit open areas, triggering sirens in Arab al-Aramashe. No injuries were reported.
Sirens sounded in the northern Israeli community of Gornot HaGalil earlier on Monday morning, with the IDF reporting that two mortar shells were identified that crossed over from Lebanese territory and struck open areas. No injuries were reported.
The IDF said that artillery was striking the source of the launches, with Lebanese media reporting that Israeli forces were shelling the Naqoura area.
Following a security assessment of rocket fire from Lebanon, residents of eight towns in the Upper Galilee were instructed on Monday to go to protected areas until further notice.
The instructions apply to Kibbutz Malkiah, Kibbutz Yiftah, Kibbutz Yir’on, Kibbutz Bar’am, Kibbutz Sasa, Moshav Dovev, Moshav Avivim and Moshav Natu’a.
Nearby roads were also closed to traffic.
Overnight Sunday, Israeli forces struck an armed terrorist cell in Lebanon, near the Biranit area of northern Israel.
On Sunday afternoon, IDF soldiers attacked two terror squads that fired mortar shells towards Kibbutz Manara and Kibbutz Yir’on in the Galilee Panhandle.
Seven soldiers were lightly injured in Manara, the army said.
