One person was killed by an anti-tank missile from Lebanon near the Shushan military outpost in northern Israel, adjacent to Kibbutz Yiftach, IDF spokesperson Avichay Adraee announced on Sunday evening.
The IDF confirmed the rocket launch and responded with artillery fire toward Lebanon.
Rocket sirens sounded across Israel’s northern border towns later on Sunday, including in cities such as Kiryat Shmona and Metula.
Around 10 rockets were fired into northern Israel and mostly intercepted by the Iron Dome system. One rocket caused a fire in Kiryat Shmona, and other rocket falls were reported in the vicinity. No casualties were reported, and Israel Police said emergency units are scanning the city for more rocket falls. A rocket landed in the heart of a civilian neighborhood in Kiryat Shmona, and a photo showed a house hit by a rocket in Kiryat Shmona on October 29, 2023.
Hezbollah claims: Three children killed in Israeli strike
A Hezbollah lawmaker claimed without evidence that IDF artillery fire killed three children and their grandmother in southern Lebanon, calling the attack “a dangerous development” that would have repercussions. “The enemy will pay the price for its crimes against civilians,” lawmaker Hassan Fadlallah told Reuters. He said the children were aged between eight and 14, and their mother had been wounded in the attack on the car as it was moving between the villages of Aynata and Aitaroun.
An Israeli army spokesperson said the IDF would be releasing a statement later on Sunday about a strike in Lebanon.
This is a developing story.
