At least two people were killed and seven others injured in an Israeli airstrike that hit a house in southern Lebanon overnight, security sources and state media said on Friday.

Lebanon’s National News Agency said a house was targeted in Janata.

Witnesses reported that the Israeli army had attacked a Hezbollah base.

They added that flying shrapnel from the attack on the targeted Hezbollah base hit and damaged an adjacent residential building, killing the two women.

The Israeli military said it is investigating the reports.

The Iran-backed Hezbollah group said it had fired dozens of rockets into northern Israel in retaliation.

Meanwhile, Israelis reportedly shelled some Lebanese villages in southern Lebanon, causing fires in some fields.

The escalation at the Lebanese-Israeli border has raised fears of an all-out war by Israel against Lebanon to halt Hezbollah’s attacks.

Israel and the Lebanese Shiite militia have been fighting each other since the start of the war in Gaza, with the daily barrage becoming increasingly fierce.

On both sides of the border, the attacks often lead to fires that spread quickly in warm, dry weather.
