The strike comes amid heightened regional tensions and a day after alleged Israeli drones crashed in the southern suburb of Beirut, prompting strong reaction from the leader of Hezbollah movement.

In a speech hours after one of the drones crashed in the Lebanese capital, Hassan Nasrallah, said the Israeli drones were on a “suicide mission”.

Air strikes by Israel against Palestinian factions in Lebanon, such as this one, have been rare in the past years.
