Hezbollah has carried out multiple strikes against Israeli settlements and positions in the northern sector of the 1948 Israeli-occupied territories, as part of another round of retaliatory operations amid the Gaza war.

The Lebanese movement said in a statement that it targeted the Shlomi and Goren settlements on Thursday in response to attacks on civilians, especially  Israeli strikes on Naqoura and Tayr Harfa towns that killed at least nine Hezbollah and Amal paramedics.

Hamas fighters on Thursday struck a “newly created” command center in Liman moshav, located in the Western Galilee region, in support of Gaza.

Additionally, Hezbollah released video footage documenting its fighters targeting a gathering of Israeli troops in Horsh Ramim close to Lebanon's southern border with the occupied territories.

The group also fired a salvo of rockets at Kiryat Shmona city.

The Israeli regime has been attacking southern Lebanon off and on since October 7, when it launched its onslaught on Gaza, killing at least 32,552 Palestinians, most of them women and children, so far.

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

At least 322 people have been killed on the Lebanese border, including 56 civilians.

Israel says at least ten soldiers and seven 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, amid rocket fire and shelling carried out by Hezbollah and allied Palestinian groups.

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