Amid weeks of tension on the Lebanese border, several anti-tank missiles were fired by Hezbollah from Lebanon towards an IDF base and military vehicles. In response, the IDF fired at Hezbollah targets in southern Lebanon and ordered residents living within 4 kilometers of the border to remain in their homes and open their bomb shelters.
Dr. Yossi Mansharof, Hezbollah and Shiite militias expert, will discuss the developments.
