Social media users posted videos on the “X” platform that they said were of Hezbollah strikes on Kiryat Shmona.

A Sky News Arabia correspondent reported that two Israeli raids occurred earlier Thursday evening, on Yarin and Al-Labouneh, in addition to a raid on Al-Taybeh in the eastern sector.

Hezbollah said Thursday that it fired dozens of rockets at Kiryat Shmona in northern Israel in an "initial response" to the killing of ten civilians in southern Lebanon, the largest number of civilians killed in one day during four months of cross-border hostilities.

It urged the United Nations to stop what it described as a "dangerous escalation" of the conflict that is taking place simultaneously with the Gaza war and stoking fears of a broader confrontation between Israel and the group allied with Iran.

The Israeli army confirmed that it killed a leader in Hezbollah's Radwan unit, his deputy, and another fighter in a "precise air strike" in Nabatieh, without talking about the killing of civilians.

According to Hezbollah, three of its members were killed on Wednesday, and it later confirmed that among them was Ali al-Debs, the commander of the Radwan unit.

Sources in Lebanon said that seven civilians were killed late on Wednesday evening in a rare Israeli attack that targeted a multi-storey building in Nabatieh. The dead were from one family, including three children.

This attack came in the wake of another attack earlier that resulted in the killing of a woman and her two children in the border village of Al-Sawana.

Hezbollah has launched almost daily attacks on Israeli targets on the border since the outbreak of war in the Gaza Strip on October 7, following an attack by Hamas fighters on southern Israel, which Tel Aviv says resulted in the deaths of 1,200 and the taking of about 250 hostages.

The cross-border bombing led to the death of more than 200 people in Lebanon, including more than 170 Hezbollah fighters, in addition to about a dozen Israeli soldiers and five Israeli civilians, in addition to the displacement of tens of thousands on both sides.
