IDF strikes Hezbollah sites in Lebanon after fresh missile, rocket attacks

October 29, 2023

The Israel Defense Forces on Saturday struck a number of Hezbollah positions in southern Lebanon in response to missile and rocket attacks, and additionally hit terror operatives preparing to carry out new attacks on northern Israel. On Saturday morning, the IDF said its air defenses had intercepted a surface-to-air missile fired from Lebanon aimed at an Israeli military drone. The IDF said no soldiers were hurt in the attacks, and troops responded with artillery shelling against the sources of the fire in southern Lebanon. The IDF has reported striking dozens of terror cells in southern Lebanon in recent days. The tit-for-tat attacks have so far remained limited in scope, amid threats from Israel that Lebanon will suffer if Hezbollah steps up its attacks.
