Two IDF soldiers sustained moderate wounds, while others suffered minor wounds from shrapnel and smoke inhalation during a Hezbollah drone attack on a base in the Western Galilee on Sunday afternoon, according to the IDF.

The Iron Dome air defense system intercepted two drones launched from Lebanon, the IDF confirmed, as Hezbollah claimed responsibility for the attack.

Simultaneously, the IDF conducted a series of expansive airstrikes targeting Hezbollah locations in southern Lebanon. The strikes aimed at rocket launching sites, military compounds, and other infrastructure affiliated with the terrorist organization, in response to recurrent border assaults.

Israeli forces also struck a terror cell in Lebanon attempting to fire anti-tank missiles toward the area of Moshav Zar’it.
