Hezbollah fires 50 rockets at Israel after IDF targets weapons plant in north Lebanon.

The IDF confirms reports of an airstrike in the northern Lebanese city of Baalbek earlier tonight, saying its warplanes targeted a Hezbollah weapons manufacturing plant.

It also confirms Hezbollah’s claim to have fired a retaliatory barrage of rockets at northern Israel, but says it only detected 50 launches into Israeli territory. Hezbollah claimed to have fired 60 rockets.

The IDF says several of the Hezbollah rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system, while the rest landed in open areas. There were no reports of injuries or damage.

In response, the IDF said its forces immediately targeted some of the rocket launchers used in the attack on Israel.
