Overnight Monday, the Israeli Air Force targeted terrorist installations in the northern Gaza Strip.

Simultaneously, airstrikes were conducted in southern Lebanon in retaliation for the destruction of the Birnit post on the northern border, damage to other IDF infrastructure along the border, and rocket launches toward Israel.

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres once again condemned Israel. Following the screening of a U.N. presentation that he opted not to attend, he criticized Israel, asserting that the casualties among children in Gaza represent the highest since 2017, emphasizing the gravity of the situation.

Meanwhile, an anti-tank missile directly hit a house in the northern border community of Metula Tuesday morning. There were no casualties, baruch Hashem. The IDF responded with fire toward the shooting sources and attacked targets in Lebanon.

Hezbollah claimed responsibility for the launch, stating it was done “as part of the support for our people in the Gaza Strip and in response to Israel’s attack on homes in southern Lebanon.”

According to a report by Hezbollah’s channel Al-Manar, Israel attacked two empty houses in Kafr Kila in southern Lebanon.

Israeli Air Force fighter jets carried out a series of strikes on Hezbollah targets in southern Lebanon Tuesday morning, including three anti-tank missile squads, in response to an anti-tank missile fired at a home in the border community of Metula and two other rocket attacks.

The IDF also reported, “A short while ago, terrorists fired mortar shells at an IDF post in northern Israel. No injuries were reported. IDF artillery is currently striking the source of the fire.” Hezbollah later claimed responsibility for the attack.
