At approximately 10:30a.m. on Wednesday morning, a missile was launched from Lebanese territory towards Israel.

Confirming the launch, the IDF said, "A short while ago, a launch of an anti-tank missile from Lebanon toward a military post adjacent to the community of Arab Al-Aramshe on the Lebanese border was identified."

Minutes before the launch, an IDF spokesman had issued a media statement, saying, "Hezbollah is examining what Israel is doing in Gaza and sees the magnitude of the destruction, and what Israel is doing in its strikes on terror. They see - and they understand it."

On Wednesday afternoon, the IDF said, "IDF aircraft struck terror targets belonging to the Hezbollah terrorist organization in Lebanon; Artillery fire was carried out toward the origin of the launch."

"In response to the anti-tank missile fired at IDF soldiers a short while ago, an IDF aircraft struck a military observation post belonging to the Hezbollah terrorist organization in southern Lebanon. Furthermore, IDF artillery struck the area from which the launch originated."

Residents of towns in the Mateh Asher Local Council have been requested to enter their protected spaces.

On Tuesday night, US President Joe Biden sent a message to Hezbollah, warning, "Let me say again, any country, any organization, anyone thinking of taking advantage of this situation, I have one word: Don’t. Don’t."
