Israeli Air Force hits Hezbollah targets in Lebanon.

The Israeli Air Force (IAF) reported on Tuesday that it had attacked Hezbollah sites in Lebanon as response for the shelling Israel had received from the neighboring nation the day before.

“A short while ago, the IAF struck terror targets and military infrastructure of the Hezbollah terrorist organisation in Lebanon, in response to fire yesterday (Monday) towards Israel,” the Air Force stated in a post to X.

A video of the strike was also published.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) had earlier declared that it was “striking Hezbollah terrorist targets in Lebanon” when the current occurrence occurred.

Since the October 7 Hamas attack, Israeli soldiers and Hezbollah, which is backed by Iran, have engaged in firefights across the border.

The US, UK, and other nations have labeled Hezbollah as a terrorist organization. Hezbollah is a significant political force in Lebanon.

According to the BBC, they are thought to possess a more advanced armament than Hamas and are able to reach targets farther within Israel.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had cautioned Iran and Hezbollah to stay out of the fighting while speaking to Parliament on Monday.

He was cited as stating, “Don’t try us, you will be severely harmed.”
