Video footage has emerged of the initial moments following Hezbollah’s firing of anti-tank missiles at Israeli military vehicles in the Har Dov region near the Lebanon border on Wednesday.

At least seven IDF soldiers were injured in the attack.

The Israeli military authorities have been on high alert the last 10 days following the attack on a convoy carrying Hezbollah and Iranian officials on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights earlier this month.

Hezbollah has vowed to avenge the attack, which it blames on Israel.

Following the anti-tank missile, mortar shells launched from Syria were fired at IDF positions on Har Dov and the Hermon Mountain.

The army evacuated dozens of people from the Hermon Mountain. A home in the Israeli border town of Kafr Rajar was damaged by a mortar shell.

The IDF responded with combined artillery and air strikes on multiple targets in southern Lebanon. "We view Hezbollah as responsible," Almoz said. "This is not necessarily the end of the IDF's response," he warned.

"We are continuing to manage this incident from the northern command," he added. "The IDF Chief of Staff is holding an ongoing evaluation of incidents. We are in the midst of this incident."

Hezbollah claimed responsibility  for the rocket attacks in northern Israel along the Lebanon border, according to a statement reported by Reuters on Wednesday.

The Lebanese terror group said its "Quneitra Martyrs Brigade" carried out the attack.
