Israel said it struck multiple Hezbollah targets in Lebanon on Tuesday, the latest in cross-border fighting between the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and the Shiite militant group.

The IDF said it conducted aerial and artillery strikes on what it said were Hezbollah terror targets in the area of Wadi Saluki in Lebanon.

“Within a short amount of time, strikes were carried out against dozens of Hezbollah posts, military structures, and weapons infrastructure,” it said in a statement.

The Lebanese state-run National News Agency (NNA) said Israel conducted “more than 15 raids, strikes the outskirts of Houla, Wadi Al-Saluki, Wadi Al-Hujair, and the Rab Thalateen Al-Taybeh road.”

The announcement from the IDF comes just hours after it said its special forces struck in the area of Ayta ash Shab in Lebanon. The IDF did not respond to CNN’s question about the target of the strike or the nature of the operation.

The Israeli military also said that overnight, one of its aircraft struck a Hezbollah anti-tank missile launcher in the area of the town of KafarKila in southern Lebanon.
