Hezbollah ramps up strikes against Israeli targets in show of support for Gaza

Frame grab from a video released by Hezbollah's media shows the moment of a strike by the Lebanese resistance movement against an Israeli target.

Lebanon's Hezbollah resistance movement says it has ramped up strikes against Israeli targets in support of Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip who are under a ferocious genocidal war waged by the occupying regime.

Through several consecutive statements carried by Lebanon's al-Manar television network on Sunday the movement said it had hit many such targets on the country's border with the occupied territories.

The first strike hit the Jal al-Allam site, using "appropriate weapons" and "achieving a direct hit," the movement said.

A simultaneous "aerial attack with assault drones" hit a newly-established command headquarters of the Israeli army south of the Ya’ara Barracks, Hezbollah added.

The Israeli army confirmed that its forces have taken fire from Lebanon, which has left several of its soldiers injured.

Hezbollah then staged a strike with Burkan missiles targeting Zibdine and Ruwaisat al-Alam sites on the Kfar Shuba hills and in Lebanon's occupied Shebaa Farms. At the same time, the movement hit "a gathering of Israeli enemy soldiers" between Zibdine and al-Ramtha sites in Shebaa Farms.

Subsequently, three simultaneous attacks by the movement hit "a fortified military structure" at the al-Abbad site, a gathering of Israeli forces at the Hounin Castle, and the Birkat Risha site, Hezbollah said, adding that the strikes caused direct hits and losses among the occupation army's ranks.

The movement said its new attacks took place "in support of the resilient Palestinian people in Gaza and in solidarity with their courageous and honorable resistance."

The Israeli military has been carrying out attacks against the Lebanese territory since October 7, when it launched its war of genocide on Gaza, prompting a firefight with Hezbollah.

The movement has vowed to keep up its retaliatory operations as long as the regime continues its onslaught against the besieged Palestinian territory.

So far, the Israeli military aggression has claimed the lives of around 18,000 people across Gaza.
