Lebanon’s Hezbollah said it attacked northern Israel on Tuesday, including with “explosive-laden drones,” a day after an assault claimed by the Iran-backed movement killed two soldiers there.

At the same time, other drones “targeted one of the Iron Dome (air defense system) platforms south of the Ramot Naftali barracks,” the Hezb added.

The Israeli army said, in this context, that “two aerial targets were identified crossing from Lebanon into northern Israel, one of which was intercepted.”

“Light damage was caused and no injuries were reported,” it said in a statement, adding that “fighter jets struck Hezbollah military structures in several areas in southern Lebanon.”

The pro-Iranian group claimed on Tuesday a total of eight attacks on Israeli military positions along the border, including barracks and spy equipment.

For its part, Israel carried out raids against Aita al-Shaab, Blida, Maroun al-Ras and Khiam.

The Israeli army also bombed Alma al-Shaab, the outskirts of Shebaa and Kfarchouba, Chihine, Jebbayn, Tayr Harfa, Kfar Hammam and Jabal Blat.

Interceptor missiles exploded over Hula and Mays al-Jabal.

Israel’s army said earlier Tuesday that two soldiers had been killed the day before in the north of the country. Israel also declared that its air force had bombed “around 15 military structures and terrorist infrastructures” in southern Lebanon.

On Monday, Hezbollah claimed a drone attack on troops near northern Israel’s Metula, with the Israeli military saying “a UAV (drone) was identified crossing from Lebanon” into the area.
