Hezbollah anti-tank missile strikes Israeli vehicle, wounds IDF troops

Hezbollah has claimed responsibility for an anti-tank missile strike against an Israeli vehicle in northern Israel on Sunday.

Israeli Defense Forces say multiple troops were "lightly injured" in the attack, while Hezbollah claims the attack resulted in at least one fatality. Israeli has responded with artillery fire on the launch site.

"Following the warning in the north of the country, an anti-tank missile was detected at an IDF vehicle in the Beit Hillel area. As a result, the vehicle was damaged. A number of IDF soldiers were slightly injured as a result of shrapnel," the IDF wrote in a statement. "Also, several launches were detected in the Har Dov area. Some of them fell in the territory of Lebanon. IDF forces attack the sources of the fire with artillery fire."

Hezbollah acknowledged the attack in its own statement on Sunday.

"In support of our steadfast Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip and in support of their brave and honorable resistance, the Mujahideen of the Islamic Resistance, at 1:10 pm on Sunday 12/3/2023, targeted a military vehicle at the Beit Hilal base with guided missiles, killing and wounding its crew," the terrorist group wrote.
