Israeli air force jets attacked terrorist bases in southern Lebanon last Thursday and Friday and returned safely to their bases, a military spokesperson announced.

The targets were located in the vicinity of Leba’a, east of Sidon on the southern Lebanon coast. They were not further identified.

According to the spokesperson, the raids were pre-emptive. Their purpose was to disrupt training and preparations for attacks on Israel Defense Force positions in the southern Lebanon security zone and in Israel itself, the spokesperson said.
