Fighters from the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah have conducted retaliatory strikes against Israeli positions, targeting barracks and gathering sites near the border in response to the regime’s genocidal war in Gaza.

Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Manar television channel, citing a Hezbollah statement released on Saturday, reported that a group of Israeli soldiers were struck at Birkat Risha outpost in the north of the occupied Palestinian territories.

A number of Israeli soldiers were also injured when Lebanese resistance fighters targeted Bayad Blida site.

Similar strikes also hit Israeli positions in Tayhat Hill and Mount Nothor.

Hezbollah launches the strikes in solidarity with the resilient Palestinian population in Gaza.

Moreover, Hezbollah fighters targeted Jal al-Alam site near the occupied Lebanese areas with heavy-caliber Burkan (Volcano) missiles.

Israel’s military said rocket fire from Lebanon had killed one of its soldiers and wounded another near the border. The soldiers were hit during “operational activity” in the Shtula area in the vicinity of southern Lebanon, the military said in a statement.

The regime has been conducting sporadic attacks on southern Lebanon since October 7.

More than 140 people have been killed on the Lebanese side of the border since then, mostly Hezbollah fighters and more than two dozen civilians, according to an AFP tally.

Israel says at least eight of its soldiers and four settlers have been killed in the area, and the Lebanese army lost a soldier.
