Two people sustained minor injuries from Hezbollah's rocket fire in the region. The barrage included dozens of rockets launched from the Golan Heights, Mount Dov, and extending to the Western Galilee. The attacks were heavy, widespread, and coordinated. Alerts for a hostile aircraft incursion were also activated in several locations.
Following the rocket sirens in the Merom HaGalil Regional Council area, a house was struck by a rocket, causing damage but no reported injuries. Hezbollah claimed responsibility for the latest barrage targeting the Galilee and the Golan Heights, stating that it fired 50 Katyusha rockets "at a military base" near Katzrin. The terror group also claimed to have targeted another military post in Israel.

The Merom HaGalil Regional Council stated, "We are witnessing an escalation from Hezbollah. The rockets are not only falling near the border but also deeper into the territory. We demand that the IDF escalate its attacks and inflict significant damage on the Lebanese side. We cannot afford to lose control of the north."
Minister for the Development of the Periphery, the Negev and the Galilee, Yitzhak Wasserlauf, criticized the government he is part of, writing on social media, "The cabinet's 'absorption policy' in the north is a disgrace. Tolerating the rocket fire on northern communities and their destruction, on a scale not seen since the establishment of the state, creating a security buffer zone within Israel, turning tens of thousands of Israelis into refugees, destroying families and lives, and eroding Israeli deterrence is a security and political failure." Wasserlauf, responsible for the Galilee, added, "It's time to dissolve the conception cabinet and change the failing policy."
