The IDF has released footage of Israeli jets striking a Hezbollah weapons depot nestled in the heart of a civilian area in Lebanon.

Israel claims that the Iran-backed terror group was using a facility in the Baalbek region for weapons production.

“Hezbollah places its production infrastructure in the heart of civilian populations in southern Lebanon, in the Beqaa Valley and in Beirut, and uses the Lebanese people as human shields,” the IDF said in a statement.

“The large and lengthy secondary explosions seen in the video are further proof of Hezbollah’s modus operandi, in which it stores explosives and dangerous chemical substances in civilian villages.”

Tensions between Israel and Hezbollah have been rising, with more than 4,500 Hezbollah terrorist sites having been targeted since the beginning of the Gaza war in October. These targets included production facilities and weapons shipments that were used to produce rockets and other types of weapons to be used against the Jewish State.

Hezbollah financed media reports that 240 of its members have been killed by Israel, but the IDF puts the number of deaths over 300.
