IDF chief spokesman Daniel Hagari posted a video on his X account with a caption saying: "Fighter jets just launched a raid on targets of the Hezbollah terrorist organization in Lebanon."

"The forces attacked and destroyed the positions from which fire was fired on our territory in recent days, as well as the military sites from which ISIS terrorists were active," Haghari said.

Lebanese media reported Israeli artillery shelling on the outskirts of the Khiam plain, Kafr Kila and Markaba in the eastern sector of southern Lebanon.

On Thursday, areas of northern Israel witnessed intensive bombardment originating from Lebanese territory, in a continuation of tensions in the border area between the two countries.

Israeli Army Radio described the shelling as "the heaviest since the beginning of the war," noting that "at least 50 rockets were fired from Lebanon towards the Upper Galilee."

Since the cross-border escalation began, 107 people have been killed in Lebanon, including 75 Hezbollah fighters, and 14 civilians, including 3 journalists, according to a tally prepared by the Agence France-Presse.

The Israeli authorities, for their part, reported the death of 9 people, including 3 civilians.

On Wednesday night, Hezbollah announced the death of five of its fighters, including Abbas, the son of the head of its parliamentary bloc, MP Mohammed Raad, after Israeli strikes in southern Lebanon.
