According to the IDF, several Hezbollah operatives were gathered in the town.

“These compounds were used by Hezbollah’s air defense array, and posed a threat to Israeli aircraft,” the IDF says in a statement.

The IDF says Hezbollah’s air defenses are located within “a civilian environment, while risking the lives of civilians in southern Lebanon.”

“The IDF will not tolerate a violation of aerial operational freedom and will operate to defend against any threat. We warn the citizens of Lebanon to refrain from cooperation with the Hezbollah terrorist organization and emphasize that in doing so, they endanger themselves and their surroundings,” the military adds.

Hezbollah announced the death of one senior member following the strike, named as Hussein Khader Mahdi, from Najarieh. Sources said two Syrians were also killed in the strikes.

In response to the Israeli strikes, a major barrage of some 75 rockets was fired toward northern Israel Friday afternoon, many of them targeting the Golan heights town of Katzrin.

According to the IDF, dozens of the rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome defense system.

The Magen David Adom ambulance service said it treated two people lightly hurt after they were wounded by one of the rocket impacts in the Upper Galilee. They were taken to Ziv Medical Center in Safed.
