Fighters from Lebanon’s resistance movement Hezbollah have conducted strikes against Israeli military positions, demonstrating their solidarity with the Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television news network, citing a Hezbollah statement, reported that the group used two heavy-caliber Burkan (Volcano) missiles to precisely target a gathering of Israeli troops on the Cobra Hill in the northern sector of the 1948 Israeli-occupied territories on Saturday.

It later said Hezbollah forces “directly” targeted Israeli soldiers in the vicinity of the Dhayra military outpost.

The resistance group also struck the Ramya outpost with a number of rockets.

Israeli warplanes, meanwhile, bombed a house in the southern Lebanese border town of Blida, according to local sources.

Israeli artillery shelling also hit the southern border town of Kfarkela, with no reports of possible casualties immediately available.

The Israeli regime has been attacking southern Lebanon off and on since October 7, when it launched the devastating campaign of death and destruction in Gaza.

In retaliation, Hezbollah has mounted near daily rocket attacks on Israeli positions.

More than 270 people have been killed on the Lebanese border, most of them Hezbollah fighters but also 44 civilians. 

Israel says at least ten of its troopers and six settlers have been killed in the area.

The fighting has forced the evacuation of tens of thousands from the northern part of the occupied territories, which have been pummeled by rocket fire and shelling carried out by Hezbollah and allied Palestinian groups.

Hezbollah has urged residents in southern Lebanon to take their CCTV camera systems offline to prevent Israel from hacking into those devices installed outside homes and shops in southern Lebanon.

Hezbollah has already fought off two Israeli wars against Lebanon in 2000 and 2006. The resistance forced the regime to retreat in both conflicts.
