BEIRUT: Lebanese media reported that an Israeli shell struck the outskirts of a town in south Lebanon today, hours after a temporary truce between the Palestinian group Hamas and Israel was extended for two days.
A spokesman for the Israeli army said it was “currently not aware of such an incident”.
Lebanon’s state-owned National News Agency and the Lebanese broadcaster al-Jadeed reported an Israeli shell had struck the outskirts of the town of Aita al-Shaab this morning.
Both outlets cited their correspondents as the source.
Weeks of cross-border shelling between Israel and the Lebanese armed group Hezbollah came to a halt on Friday when the Palestinian group Hamas – a Hezbollah ally – and Israel agreed the temporary truce in their conflict which erupted on Oct 7.
A spokesman for the UN peacekeeping force in Lebanon Unifil said it was looking into the reports.
