Lebanon’s Hezbollah terror group fired a large barrage of rockets at northern Israel on Friday night as the country braces for an expected retaliatory attack by Iran or its proxies to an alleged Israeli strike in Syria that killed several Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps members.

A statement from the Iran-backed terror group claiming responsibility for the rocket fire on the Galilee Panhandle said Hezbollah operatives launched dozens of Katyushas at Israel Defense Forces artillery positions in northern Israel.

The military said around 40 rockets were launched, some of which were intercepted, while others impacted open areas or fell short in Lebanon.


There were no reports of injuries in the attack. The IDF also said air defenses shot down two explosive-laden drones launched by Hezbollah at northern Israel.
