Hezbollah carried out on June 14 more than ten attacks against Israel, targeting military sites, equipment, troops and settlements near the Lebanese border.

The group also announced that it targeted a technical system of the IDF in Metula with a suicide drone and struck surveillance equipment in the sites of Miskaf Aam and Jal al-Deir
