IDF shells Lebanon after mortars launched into Israel

The projectiles landed in the contested Mount Dov region close to the Blue Line.


The Israel Defense Forces on Sunday hit targets in southern Lebanon with artillery, after terrorists there fire mortars at the Jewish state.

There were no reports of casualties or damage.

The shells landed in the contested Mount Dov region close to the Blue Line, which demarcates the 120-kilometer (75 mile) border and was created in 2000 by U.N. cartographers to verify Israel’s withdrawal from Lebanon.

The Iran-backed Hezbollah terror organization does not recognize the Blue Line and disputes numerous points along the border.

In April, Hamas fired 34 rockets from southern Lebanon towards northern Israel in the biggest attack emanating from the Hezbollah-controlled country since the 2006 war.

Last month, the IDF bolstered its forces on the country’s northern border after a Lebanese “engineering vehicle” strayed a few meters into Israeli territory.

In July, the IDF revealed that armed Hezbollah terrorists were spotted patrolling the border in clear violation of a legally binding U.N. resolution.

In early April, Hezbollah erected an outpost a few meters on the Israeli side of the Blue Line. The position, located across from an IDF post, was reportedly manned by three to eight armed terrorists.

A month earlier, a terrorist who infiltrated into Israel from Lebanon planted a roadside bomb in northern Israel that severely wounded a motorist. Shareef ad-Din, 21, from the Israeli Arab town of Salem, was caught in the blast when the device detonated behind a road barrier near the Megiddo Junction, some 18 miles southeast of Haifa.

Hezbollah said that Saturday’s devastating multi-pronged Hamas attack on Israel was in response to both the “continued occupation and a message to those seeking normalization with it.”

The United States has been working on a landmark peace deal between Israel and Saudi Arabia, which many believed could be signed in the coming months.

Hamas killed more than 250 Israelis on Saturday—the Jewish holiday of Simchat Torah—as it launched a massive offensive from the Gaza Strip, including firing more than 3,000 rockets and sending dozens of Palestinian terrorists to infiltrate the Jewish state.
