100 artillery shells and missile fire from Israel Air Force helicopters were part of the IDF’s response to the Hezbollah anti-tank missile attack from Lebanon on Sunday.

According to the IDF, a Hezbollah cell launched three advanced Russian-made Kornet anti-tank missiles at an IDF base and some nearby vehicles. No one was injured and the military, which was on high alert, was quick to retaliate, launching a massive salvo of artillery shells into Lebanon and at Hezbollah positions. The cell itself, was targeted by an IAF attack helicopter.

OC Northern Command Maj.-Gen. Amir Baram managed the operation from a nearby IDF base.

The military initially ordered residents living within 4 kilometers of the border to remain in their homes and open their bomb shelters. By evening, the IDF announced that residents could leave their homes.
