A military spokesperson said the IDF was returning fire and that its troops had struck a squad intending to launch another attack.
An eyewitness told Ynet that he was mere feet away when the missile struck. "Everything here was smoke and fire," he said. "Now the IDF is shelling very hard towards Lebanon," he said.
The Hezbollah-affiliated Al Mayadeen channel said Israeli drones were attacking villages near the border. The Al Manar channel said there were wounded in one of the attacks.
