Two Israelis were wounded on Tuesday in a Hezbollah rocket attack on Kiryat Shmona, close to the border with Lebanon.

The Magen David Adom emergency medical service said both victims were conscious. A 15-year-old boy is in serious condition and a 47-year-old woman was moderately hurt.

On Monday, the Israel Defense Forces attacked a vehicle carrying Hezbollah operatives in the Maroun al-Ras region and destroyed terrorist infrastructure in the areas of Al-Adisa, Al-Khyam and Tir Harfa al Jabin, all in Southern Lebanon.

It was unclear whether Muhammad Abd al-Rasoul Alawiyah, the Hezbollah member in charge of the Maroun al-Ras region, survived the targeted killing attempt in Maroun al-Ras, which slew several people.

The IDF has struck more than 3,400 Hezbollah targets in Southern Lebanon since the Iranian terrorist proxy joined the war in support of Hamas.

For its part, Hezbollah fired more than 2,000 rockets at Israel between Oct. 8 and Jan. 9. Additionally, the group has launched dozens of anti-tank missiles and drones at Israeli territory.

More than 80,000 Israelis living in communities near the Lebanese border have been evacuated due to Hezbollah missile attacks. Israel has repeatedly made it clear that if diplomacy fails to distance the Shi’ite terrorist group from the border, it will resort to force to ensure the safe return of its citizens.
