Israeli fighter jets carried out strikes on Iran-backed Hezbollah targets in Lebanon, the Israeli military said on Thursday.

“The targets included a number of military posts from which Hezbollah terrorists operated. In addition… [Israeli army] soldiers struck a terrorist who was operating in Lebanese territory, adjacent to the area of Shlomi in northern Israel,” the Israeli army said in a statement.

Earlier, the Israeli army said: “An anti-tank missile was launched from Lebanon toward the area of Shlomi in northern Israel. In response, the [Israeli army] struck the Hezbollah launch post from which the missile was fired.”

Lebanese state news agency NNA reported on Thursday that Israeli warplanes raided Naqoura — namely Hamoul and Al-Labouneh — and fired two missiles toward the same region. The Israeli warplanes also raided Aita al-Shaab area twice and fired two missiles toward the same region.

Tensions continue to grow north of the Israeli border, with Iran-backed Lebanese militia Hezbollah launching regular attacks targeting Israeli sites and the Israeli military returning fire since the outbreak of the Israel-Hamas war.
