A reserve soldier was seriously injured Saturday after a UAV launchd from Lebanon exploded near him.

"As a result of the explosive UAV attack in the area of Hanita earlier today (Saturday), an IDF reservist who is a member of the kibbutz security team was severely wounded," the IDF confirmed.

"He was evacuated to the hospital to receive medical treatment and his family has been informed."

Just after the UAVs infiltrated Israel, the IDF reported: "Following the sirens that sounded in the area of Hanita in northern Israel, three launches that were identified crossing from Lebanon into Israel fell in open areas."

"In addition, two Hezbollah explosive UAVs that were identified crossing from Lebanon into Israel a short while ago exploded in the area of Hanita. In response, IDF artillery struck in southern Lebanon."
