Hezbollah strikes Israeli Meron airbase, Beit Hillel military base in support of Gaza

This file picture taken from a video released by the Hezbollah military media bureau shows the moment an anti-tank guided missile launched by the Lebanese resistance movement hits a radar dome at the Israeli Meron air control base.

The Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement has carried out multiple operations against Israeli military positions in the northern side of the 1948 Israeli-occupied territories in response to the Tel Aviv regime’s unrelenting strikes against Palestinians in Gaza and repeated assaults on Lebanon's southern regions.

Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television news channel reported that Hezbollah fighters targeted the Meron air control base and the Beit Hillel military base with a barrage of rockets and artillery shells.

The strikes came in response to Israeli drone strikes that killed two Hezbollah military commanders in the southern Lebanese towns of Ain Baal and Shehabiyeh.

Hezbollah announced that its fighters also struck the Command Headquarters of the Israeli military’s Eastern Brigade 769 in Kiryat Shmona barracks, and the Command Headquarters of the 146th Division in Kibbutz Jaatoun with salvos of Katyusha rockets.

Israeli media outlets reported that Hezbollah rockets caused damage inside Kiryat Shmona barracks. Their projectiles also sounded warning sirens inside Israeli settlements close to the border with Lebanon.

Israeli Army Radio also reported that the Lebanese resistance group had fired at least 20 rockets towards the Western Galilee area in northern occupied territories. There has been no report of material damage or injuries.

Additionally, Hezbollah declared in a separate statement that it targeted the al-Baghdadi site with artillery shells.

The group also said that three of its members had been killed in clashes with the Israeli army in southern Lebanon.

The Israeli regime has repeatedly attacked southern Lebanon since October 7, when it launched a genocidal war on Gaza that has killed at least 33,843 Palestinians, most of them women and children.

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

At least 349 people have been killed on the Lebanese border, including 68 civilians.

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.
