The Israeli military says that its artillery is responding to mortar attacks
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said that they have carried out artillery stirkes on the territory of Lebanon in response to mortar attacks from across the border.
The shelling was reported on Sunday morning, a day after Hamas and other Palestinian groups launched a large-scale assault on Israeli cities and army bases from the Gaza strip.
“The IDF has been taking preparational measures for this type of possibility and will continue to operate in all regions and at any time necessary to ensure the safety of the Israeli civilians,” the army said in a statement carried by the Times of Israel.
