The Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah has conducted a fresh reprisal attack against an Israeli military position in a show of support for the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip who are subjected to a genocidal war by the occupying regime.

In a statement released on Monday morning, Hezbollah said it had fired artillery toward the Zarit barracks and its vicinity in the occupied territories.

It added that the operation was conducted in solidarity with the “steadfast Palestinian people” in the besieged Gaza and their “brave and honorable resistance.”

On Sunday, Hezbollah launched similar operations against several Israeli military sites, including Jal al-Alam and a-Malikiyah, as well as the surveillance system stationed at the Metulla base.

The resistance group also said that it had foiled attempted Israeli military incursions into the villages of Rmeish and Ramia in southern Lebanon.

Hezbollah said that its fighters detonated a large explosive device against Israeli forces from the Golani Brigade, who had attempted to infiltrate into Ramia, and targeted them with several artillery shells.

The fighters, it added, also targeted Israeli soldiers with rocket weapons near Rmeish.

Hezbollah and Israel have been exchanging fire since early October, shortly after the occupying regime launched its genocidal war on Gaza following a surprise operation by the Palestinian Hamas resistance movement.

The resistance movement’s constant rocket fire has prompted tens of thousands of Israeli settlers to flee from northern areas of the occupied territories.

Hezbollah has vowed to keep up its retaliatory operations as long as the usurping entity continues its aggression against Gaza, which has so far killed at least 30,410 Palestinians, mostly women and children, and injured 71,700 others.
