Moment Israeli jets blow up key Hezbollah base in latest Lebanon strike

Dramatic footage shows the moment Israeli jet fighters blew up a key Hezbollah position in Lebanon, according to the nation’s military.

Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said it targeted sites from which missiles had been fired towards settlements in the north of Israel.

In post on X, IDF spokesman Daniel Hagari wrote that Israeli air force fighter jets “attacked a military site of the terrorist organization Hezbollah.”

He continued: “The attack was carried out in response to launches from Lebanon, towards the settlements of the Western Galilee earlier today.

“In addition, in the last few hours, a number of launches from Lebanon were detected at IDF positions in the north of the country.”

He added: “IDF forces attacked the sources of the shooting.”

Footage that accompanied the post appeared to show an airborne view of targets exploding, but didn’t clarify exactly what was happening in each clip.

It comes as reports suggest Lebanon mayor Hussein Mansour and a family member have been killed in an Israeli missile strike.

A relative and Lebanon’s national news agency told Reuters that the missile struck his home a few kilometers from the Israel border.

According to relative, the shell did not explode but struck Mansour directly.
