Israel conducted airstrikes in Lebanon again on Thursday, prompting a response from United Nations peacekeepers in the area.

The Lebanese National News Agency reported that jets belonging to “the Israeli enemy” struck near Marjayoun in southern Lebanon. The warplanes also hit close to the Rashidieh Palestinian refugee camp in the south, according to a Lebanese army statement. The airstrikes led to holes in the ground in both areas, per the army.
