Overnight, IAF fighter jets struck a military complex of the Hezbollah 4400 unit, the logistical reinforcement unit of the Hezbollah terrorist organization. The unit is used to smuggle weapons to and from Lebanon.

In the complex, two sites located in the area of Baalbek deep in Lebanon were struck.

In addition, terror targets in the area of Aitaroun in southern Lebanon were struck, including a military site and two Hezbollah military structures.

The strikes were conducted as a response to the downing of an IDF UAV that was operating in the skies of Lebanon on Monday.
