Amid Tensions With Iran, Israel Targets Hezbollah Training Camp In Lebanon

One of the strikes was aimed at the town of Safri, near the eastern city of Baalbek

Israel launched air strikes on the Bekaa Valley, in eastern Lebanon early on Sunday, two Lebanese security sources told Reuters, a few hours after the downing of an Israeli drone over Lebanon.

The sources said that the Israeli attack targeted a training camp belonging to armed group Hezbollah in the Janta village, near the border with Syria.

One of the strikes was aimed at the town of Safri, near the eastern city of Baalbek, the sources added.

Hezbollah has been trading fire with Israel across Lebanon’s southern border since Oct. 8, a day after Palestinian group Hamas launched an attack on Israel that has led to escalating regional tensions.

The Iran-backed group claimed responsibility for downing an Israeli drone earlier on Saturday.

“The drone belonging to the Israeli army, which was shot down by the Islamic resistance fighters over Lebanese territory on the evening of Saturday, April 6, 2024, is of type Hermez 900,” Hezbollah said in a statement.
