According to the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit, the terrorist cell was identified as belonging to the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah. The IDF fired tank shells at the suspects, striking them and thwarting the attack.

Recently, two rockets were also fired by Hezbollah on Israeli positions on Mount Hermon in the Golan Heights.

The IDF has been on high alert since last week, when Hezbollah promised retaliation following a purported Israeli airstrike on a Hezbollah-bound weapons convoy on the Syria-Lebanon border.
