Jerusalem: The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said it had struck an operational command center of the Hezbollah movement in Lebanon.

“A short while ago, IDF fighter jets struck a Hezbollah operational command center in Lebanon,” the IDF said in a statement on Telegram on Wednesday.

It said IDF servicemen had identified a number of the Lebanese movement’s members approaching the security fence from Lebanon.

“IDF soldiers identified a number of terrorists approaching the security fence from Lebanon along the border in the area of Metula. IDF soldiers fired toward them, hits were identified,” the IDF said.

On October 7, Hamas launched a large-scale rocket attack against Israel from the Gaza Strip across the border, killing over 1,200 people and abducting some 240 others. Israel launched retaliatory strikes, ordered a complete blockade of Gaza and launched a ground incursion into the Palestinian enclave with the declared goal of eliminating Hamas fighters and rescuing the hostages. Over 20,000 people have been killed so far in Gaza as a result of the conflict, local authorities said.

On November 24, Qatar mediated a deal between Israel and Hamas on a temporary truce and the exchange of some of the prisoners and hostages, as well as the delivery of humanitarian aid into the Gaza Strip. The ceasefire was extended several times and expired on December 1.
