Israeli army strikes more Hezbollah sites in southern Lebanon

The Israeli army on late Friday said its jet fighters struck targets of the Hezbollah group in southern Lebanon, shortly after what it said a Hezbollah rocket attack on northern Israel.

In a statement, the army said its warplanes hit a Hezbollah rocket launcher in the Lebanese Yaroun town, following a Hezbollah rocket attack at the Avivim settlement area.

It also said the fighter jets targeted Hezbollah weapons depot in the Houla village, and hit another military infrastructure in the town of Aitaroun.

Earlier, the Israeli army reported 10 rockets fired from southern Lebanon on Friday evening towards the Metula settlement, setting off the sirens in the area.

No casualties were reported from the attacks on the Israeli northern areas.

Tensions have intensified between Hezbollah and the Israeli military over the past two days, following the killing of prominent Hezbollah leader Taleb Sami Abdallah in an Israeli airstrike in southern Lebanon on Tuesday.

Tensions have risen along Lebanon's border with Israel amid cross-border attacks between Hezbollah and Israeli forces as Tel Aviv presses ahead with its deadly offensive on the Gaza Strip.
