Fighters from the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement have carried out a string of strikes against Israeli military positions to show their support for the Palestinians’ resistance amid the unrelenting Israeli onslaught on the Gaza Strip.

Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Manar television channel, citing a Hezbollah statement, reported that the group struck the command headquarters of the 3rd Infantry Brigade of the Israeli military at Ein Zeitim base in the 1948 occupied territories at around 11:00 p.m. local time (2100 GMT) on Thursday with dozens of Katyusha rockets.

Lebanese resistance fighters also pounded the Branit barracks and its garrison with a salvo of missiles, and destroyed targets there.

Earlier in the day, Hezbollah targeted a number of military posts and a command center in the northern part of the occupied lands as Israeli artillery shelled several border towns in southern Lebanon.

Hezbollah said in a statement that it had attacked the Jalil command center in Kiryat Shmona, soldiers in Metula, and the radar post in the occupied Shebaa Farms.

An officer and two soldiers were wounded in the Kiryat Shmona attack, the Israeli army radio said.

Israeli artillery units meanwhile shelled the southern towns of Kfarkila, al-Khiam, al-Hamames and the outskirts of Aita al-Shaab.

Moreover, Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television news network reported that Hezbollah fighters had bombed the Meron air base with several Falaq (Dusk) rockets earlier on Thursday. 

The Lebanese resistance group said it attacked the strategically important Israeli air base in support of resilient Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and also in response to the Israeli attacks on Lebanese villages and civilians.

The Israeli regime launched its devastating hostilities in the Gaza Strip on October 7 after the territory’s Hamas-led Palestinian resistance groups carried out a surprise retaliatory attack, dubbed Operation Al-Aqsa Storm, against the occupying entity.

The Israeli military has also been carrying out attacks against the Lebanese territory since then, prompting retaliatory strikes from Lebanon’s resistance movement Hezbollah in support of the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip.

The movement has vowed to keep up its retaliatory operations as long as the Tel Aviv regime continues its onslaught on Gaza.

The Israeli campaign in Gaza has killed at least 27,840 people, most of them women and children. Another 67,317 individuals have also been wounded.
