Hezbollah attacks 9 Israeli military sites

Lebanon's Hezbollah has launched rockets and weaponised drones at nine Israeli military sites in a coordinated attack, ramping up hostilities on Lebanon's southern border for the second consecutive day. 

The attacks were made in retaliation for an Israeli strike on Tuesday that killed a senior Hezbollah field commander. 

The group said in a statement it had fired volleys of Katyusha and Falaq rockets at six Israeli military locations. Its Al-Manar television reported more than 100 rockets fired at once. 

Hezbollah's statement said it had also launched attack drones at the headquarters of Israel's northern command, an intelligence headquarters and a military barracks. 

A security source said involved firing at least 30 attack drones at once, making it the group's largest drone attack to date in the eight-month-old war.
