- IDF Fires at Targets Inside Lebanon After Anti-Tank Missile Lands Near Israeli Border Town
The Israeli military has reportedly engaged in a cross-border exchange of fire, after an anti-tank missile – said to have come from Lebanon – landed near an Israeli border town.
“A number of anti-tank missiles were fired from Lebanon towards an Israel Defense Forces base and military vehicles. A number of hits have been confirmed,” the IDF said in a statement on Sunday, adding that the Israeli military is “responding with fire towards the sources of fire and targets in southern Lebanon.”
An IDF spokesman said later in the afternoon that while hostilities appeared to be over, Israeli forces remain on alert.
Tensions between Israel and Lebanon have increased, following a series of Israeli drone excursions into Lebanese territory. Earlier on Sunday, the Lebanese military said an Israeli drone violated Lebanon’s airspace and dropped incendiary material, sparking a fire in a pine forest near the border.
