Fighters from the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah have carried out multiple strikes against Israeli military outposts in close proximity to the border between Lebanon and the 1948 occupied territories in response to the atrocities in Gaza.
Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Manar television channel, citing a Hezbollah statement released on Saturday, reported that the group had targeted Israeli soldiers in al-Samaqah region with a number of missiles, causing casualties among the troops.
Additional strikes hit the vicinity of the Ramia military base, leaving several Israeli soldiers injured.
Hezbollah fighters targeted another gathering of Israeli soldiers near the Metula region, resulting in casualties.
Israeli forces at the Ruwaisa al-Asi site, al-Baghdadi base and the 91st division command headquarters in Biranit base were also attacked, causing unspecified injuries.
Israeli shelling, meanwhile, targeted the southern Lebanese border towns of Naqoura, Kfarshouba, al-Wazzani, Blida, Mhaybib, al-Dhayra, Alma al-Shaab and Tayr Harfa.
The developments came a day after Israeli artillery units shelled several Lebanese border towns, including Blida, Dhaira, Rashaya al-Fokhar, Kfarshouba, Houla, Markaba, Aitaroun, al-Naqoura, Odeisseh, Maroun al-Ras, Mhaibib, al-Labbouneh, al-Naqoura and Shihine, as Hezbollah announced the death of one of its fighters.
Hezbollah, for its part, targeted Misgav Aam, Khirbet Ma'ar, al-Raheb post, and Ruwaisat al-Alam with “appropriate weapons.”
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.
More than 120 people have been killed on the Lebanese side of the border since October 7, mostly Hezbollah fighters and more than a dozen civilians, according to an AFP tally.
Israel says six of its soldiers and four settlers have been killed in the area, and the Lebanese army lost its first soldier in the exchanges on Tuesday.
