The Israeli Air Force struck a target near Beirut in South Lebanon early on Friday morning, the IDF said in a statement.

The airstrike was made in response to rockets fired from Lebanon into Northern Israel on Thursday.

According to the statement, the strike was an exact strike and all of the pilots returned to Israel safely.

Additionally, Israel announced that the government holds Lebanon as responsible for the rocket fire that occurred on Thursday, even though a Sunni group called the Abdallah al-Azzam Brigades claimed responsibility for the rockets.
