Israel-Hezbollah border clashes: Latest developments


Hezbollah launched Thursday an array of suicide drones on an artillery base in Israel's Kabri in response to attacks on Lebanese civilians and villages.

The group later targeted the al-Malkia post, surveillance equipment in Hadb Yarine and a group of soldiers in Hanita in northern Israel.

Israeli warplanes meanwhile raided Tayr Harfa and the outskirts of al-Jebbayn.

Warplanes had raided overnight the southern border towns of al-Khiam, Odaisseh, and Ramia, after Hezbollah carried out Wednesday four attacks on northern Israel and the Golan Heights.

Hezbollah has traded almost daily fire with Israeli forces in support of Gaza since Hamas' October 7 attack on Israel triggered war in the Strip, stoking fears of a full-blown conflict.

Hezbollah announced four attacks on Wednesday, including an "aerial offensive with a squadron of explosive drones" targeting a military base in the Israeli-annexed Golan Heights.

The Israeli military said one soldier was lightly wounded after "approximately three" drones "crossed from Lebanon... and fell" in the southern Golan Heights.

In Lebanon, the cross-border violence since October has killed nearly 500 people, mostly fighters but also including 95 civilians, according to an AFP tally.

On the Israeli side, at least 29 people have been killed, the majority of them soldiers, according to the authorities.
