In Apparent Deepest Attack of War, Drone Launched from Lebanon Strikes near Nazareth

A drone launched from Lebanon, likely by the Hezbollah terror group, impacted an open area in the Jezreel Valley, near Nazareth, in northern Israel on Friday afternoon, June 7, the Israeli military said.

According to the IDF, it carried out a failed attempt to intercept the drone before the aircraft impacted in an open field, causing no injuries or major damage. Residents of the area reported seeing an Iron Dome missile launch. The IDF said it was investigating why it failed to down the drone and why sirens did not sound.

The incident potentially marked the deepest Hezbollah attack in Israel amid the war, with the projectile hitting an area some 40 kilometers (24 miles) from the border. The previous deepest attack occurred last month when a Hezbollah drone struck a military facility some 35 kilometers (21 miles) from the Lebanon border.

Hezbollah did not immediately claim responsibility for Friday’s drone. At the same time as the incident near Nazareth, a second drone struck an area near the border community of Shomera, the military added. No injuries were caused by either drone.

On Friday evening, the military said two rockets launched from Lebanon struck open areas near Matat, and that also on Friday, Israeli fighter jets struck a Hezbollah rocket launcher and other infrastructure in southern Lebanon. (TOI / VFI News)

“God, we ask that the attacks from Lebanon cease and for the terrorist organization Hezbollah to be immediately dismantled, in Yeshua’s name. We pray that our people will be able to live peacefully with all our neighbors and that no one will experience any form of violence, tragic loss, or fear for their and their loved ones’ lives. Please protect Your people from those seeking to harm them and lead the wicked to repentance and immediate abandonment of their malicious plans, according to Your will.”
