IDF fighter jets on Saturday struck targets belonging to the Hezbollah terror organization.

In a statement Saturday night, the IDF confirmed: "In response to the rocket and missile fire from Lebanon during the past day, IDF fighter jets struck a number of military targets belonging to the Hezbollah terrorist organization in Lebanon."

"During the strikes, Hezbollah terror infrastructure was targeted, including a military compound and observation posts."

Earlier on Saturday, the IDF shot down a surface-to-air missile fired from Lebanese territory towards an IAF aircraft. Following the hit to the missile, a loud explosion was heard, but no siren sounded.

An IDF spokesman said that following the incident, the IDF attacked the source of the fire. Two hours later, air raid sirens sounded in the Galilee after antitank missiles and mortars were fired towards Israel. The IDF responded with artillery fire and tank fire towards Lebanese territory.

At about 6:00p.m., a third incident of fire from Lebanon occurred, leading the IDF to return fire.

A surface-to-air missile was intercepted during the afternoon after an IAF aircraft attacked Hezbollah infrastructure in Lebanon overnight, in response to Friday rocket fire launched towards Israel but which fell in Syria.
