Hezbollah, the Lebanese militia, fired missiles into northern Israel on Tuesday that wounded at least two people, emergency officials said, amid a new diplomatic push to end months of clashes along the border.

Hezbollah said it had launched two separate attacks against Israel, one targeting Israeli soldiers and the other at a police building in the northern town of Kiryat Shmona.

A 15-year-old boy and a 47-year-old woman were seriously injured in Kiryat Shmona, according to Magen David Adom, Israel’s nonprofit emergency medical service. They had gotten out of the car they were traveling in when an anti-tank missile hit nearby, but were injured when another fell, said Ofir Yehezkeli, deputy mayor of Kiryat Shmona.

Israel and Hezbollah – a Hamas ally in Gaza – have engaged in cross-border attacks almost daily since the deadly Hamas-led attacks on October 7 in Israel. The fighting has displaced more than 150,000 people from their homes on both sides of the Israel-Lebanon border.

The United States and others have made diplomatic efforts to reduce tensions. A Western diplomat said on Tuesday that France had presented a proposal to Israel, the Lebanese government and Hezbollah. The French proposal was first reported by Reuters.

The proposal details a 10-day de-escalation process and calls for Hezbollah to withdraw its fighters to within 10 kilometers (six miles) of Lebanon’s border with Israel, according to the diplomat, who is participating in the talks and who requested anonymity to discuss discuss the delicate deliberations. The diplomat said French Foreign Minister Stéphane Séjourné presented the written proposal to the Lebanese government last week during a visit to the country.

Lebanon’s Foreign Ministry confirmed that the government had received the proposal. The French Foreign Ministry and Hezbollah did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

In recent weeks, Israel has warned that unless a diplomatic solution is reached, it would have to use military force to stop Hezbollah attacks and allow tens of thousands of Israelis to return to their homes.
