Hizbollah reported conducting multiple attacks against Israeli targets near the Lebanon border. The Israeli military confirmed that it had conducted airstrikes against “various terror targets, including terror infrastructure and an operational command center of the Hizbollah terrorist organisation, and killed its terrorists. The strike was in response to the firing of an anti-tank missile from Lebanese territory towards the State of Israel, which resulted in the death of an Israeli civilian”. Prime Minister Netanyahu warned that “if Hizbollah decides to open an all-out war, then with its own hands it will turn Beirut and southern Lebanon… into Gaza and Khan Yunis”.
