IDF Hits Hard After Hezbollah Wounds Three Israeli Soldiers

by Micha Gefen

A non-commissioned officer was seriously wounded and two more soldiers were lightly hurt by a Hezbollah anti-tank missile attack in the Kiryat Shmona area this morning, the IDF announces.

The IDF says fighter jets carried out strikes on a building and other infrastructure used by Hezbollah in the south Lebanon town of Khiam, from which the projectiles were fired at Kiryat Shmona.

The IDF says projectiles were also fired from Lebanon at the Biranit base and Mount Hermon.

It says troops also shelled the launch sites with artillery.

The chief of the Israeli Air Force, Maj. Gen. Tomer Bar, issues a warning to the Hezbollah terror group, saying hundreds of Israeli fighter jets are ready to strike at a moment’s notice.

“Hezbollah will continue to pay with the loss of its systems. Dozens of aircraft are now operating in the skies of southern Lebanon, and as soon as the order is given, the dozens will turn into hundreds that will perform the missions within minutes of being scrambled,” Bar says at an internal IAF conference.

During the conference, senior officers summarized the IAF’s recent activities amid the war in the Gaza Strip, and presented the plans for 2024 which is expected to be a year of fighting.
