Israeli Military Striking Targets Inside Lebanon in Response to Anti-Tank Missile Attack - IDF
Tensions between Israel and Lebanon began escalating last Sunday, after Beirut accused Tel Aviv of carrying out a drone attack against the media headquarters of political party and paramilitary group Hezbollah. Late last week, Israel claimed Hezbollah was trying to create missile factories inside Lebanon with assistance from Iran's Revolutionary Guards. Hezbollah denied the claims.
The Israel Defence Forces confirmed Sunday that they were firing at targets inside southern Lebanon after a volley of anti-tank missiles had targeted an Israeli military base and vehicles near the border area.
The military has ordered Israeli civilians near the border with Lebanon to remain in their homes, and said shelters would be opened in the area.
The IDF said later Sunday that it had no casualties to report on the Israeli side, while over 100 targets had been struck in Lebanon.
