Hezbollah targets Israeli military base with heavy-caliber Burkan missile

A screen grab taken from a video published by the military media bureau of the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement shows the blast-off of a heavy-caliber Burkan (Volcano) missile on November 20, 2023, which is aimed at the Israeli Division 91 at Branit barracks in the occupied territories.

Fighters from the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement have targeted an Israeli military base in the north of 1948 Israeli-occupied territories, amid exchanges of near-daily fire between the two sides since the occupying regime launched its assault on Gaza.

Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television news network, citing a Hezbollah statement, reported that the group struck Jal al-Alam base with a heavy-caliber Burkan (Volcano) missile on Sunday, causing casualties among the soldiers deployed at the site.

The development came a day after Hezbollah fighters launched a number of operations against Israeli military sites, troops, and equipment across the border between Lebanon and the occupied Palestinian lands.

They carried out a drone strike against a newly established command and control center of the Israeli military’s 300th Territorial Brigade.

The combat drone precisely hit the designated target near Liman moshav in the Western Galilee region.

Hezbollah fighters also attacked a gathering of Israeli troops near Jal al-Alam military base, leaving a number of the soldiers injured.

The Israeli regime launched the devastating war on Gaza 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 war on Gaza has killed at least 30,410 people, most of them children and women. Another 71,700 individuals have also been wounded.
