Israeli warplanes carried out airstrikes on unidentified targets in south Lebanon, the Israeli army said overnight Wednesday.
Warplanes targeted areas where rockets were launched at Israel earlier in the day, according to an Israeli army official.
A separate air strike was carried out on a target where rockets were previously launched at Israel. During the 11-day Israeli bombardment of Gaza, rockets were reportedly fired by Palestinian factions based in south Lebanon.
Two targets were targeted in south Lebanon, according to Lebanon’s The Daily Star, citing a local security source.
A loud explosion was reported near the Dimashkiye area, according to an Al Arabiya English correspondent.
The Israeli army spokesperson threatened more strikes and warned against escalation. “The Lebanese state shoulders responsibility for what takes place inside its territory,” the official said.
