Fighters from the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah have struck Israeli military positions close to the border between Lebanon and the 1948 occupied territories.

Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Manar television channel, citing a Hezbollah statement released on Saturday, reported that the group launched projectiles at a command center belonging to the Israeli army at Biranit barracks in northern Israel, causing casualties in the targeted area.

The Lebanese resistance fighters also struck positions in the Khirbat Maer Israeli post near the border. The Israeli army later stated that shells were fired at the Shomera area in northern Israel, and that it responded with artillery fire.

Israeli shelling, meanwhile, targeted the outskirts of the southern Lebanese border towns of Tayr Harfa, Naqoura, Maroun al-Ras, Yaroun, Blida, Alma al-Shaab and al-Qawzah, al-Manar TV said.

The artillery and rocket strikes were conducted as Israel keeps bombing the besieged Gaza Strip after a seven-day truce with the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas ended.

Hezbollah also announced the death of one more of its fighters, identified as Khodor Abboud, who hailed from the southern Lebanese town of Deir Ames.

On Friday, Hezbollah said two of its members were among three people killed in Israeli strikes on southern Lebanon.

The group in separate statements identified the members killed as Mohammad Mazraani and Wajih Msheik.

A source close to the group said Mazraani was killed in his home along with his mother Nasifa.

The Israeli regime has been waging sporadic attacks on southern Lebanon since October 7, when it launched a devastating war against the besieged Gaza Strip.

Hezbollah has mounted near daily rocket attacks on Israeli positions at the border, while Israel has conducted air and artillery strikes in southern Lebanon.

Senior Hezbollah politician Hassan Fadlallah has said the group was vigilant and ready after the Hamas-Israel truce ended.

“In Lebanon, we are concerned in facing this challenge, being vigilant, and always ready to confront any possibility and any danger that may arise in our country,” he said.

“No one thinks that Lebanon has been spared from this Zionist targeting or that what is happening in Gaza cannot affect the situation in Lebanon,” Fadlallah noted.
