The Israeli military suspects that an armed militant crossed from Lebanon into Israel, subsequently executing a roadside bomb attack. The attack in northern Israel gravely injured an Israeli Arab individual. Following the bombing, the military shot and killed the suspected attacker, who was found near the border with an array of weapons. Investigations are ongoing to determine if Hezbollah, an organization with a history of conflict with Israel, played a role in this event.
- A roadside bomb in northern Israel, near Megiddo Junction, severely injured a 21-year-old resident named Sherif al-Din.
- The suspected attacker was intercepted and killed in a car near the border; he had an explosive belt, a rifle, and a pistol.
- The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) speculate the attacker crossed from Lebanon, committed the bombing, and was attempting to return, with the help of an Israeli driver who was subsequently arrested.
- Investigations are centered around the possible involvement of Hezbollah, marking this as potentially the first cross-border attack by the group in several years.
- Tensions between Israel and Hezbollah have historical roots, with the two sides clashing in a significant conflict in 2006 and smaller confrontations since.
