Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement says it has killed and injured more than 2,000 Israeli forces in its 1,650 operations on the occupied territories since the start of the regime’s genocidal war on the Gaza Strip.

Hezbollah released the figures in an infographic on Wednesday, which marked the 200th day of the Israeli aggression that has so far killed a shocking number of Palestinians and led to a humanitarian crisis in the besieged Gaza.

The group said that it conducted 352 artillery shelling, and 55 drone strikes, fired 727 surface-to-surface rockets, as well as 546 guided missiles and 77 machine guns towards the occupied lands.

The Lebanese resistance fighters have managed to inflict losses on 344 bunkers and fortifications, 328 technical equipment, 722 settlement units, 92 military vehicles, 67 command centers, 33 artillery positions, five drones, five so-called Iron Dome missile platforms, and two factories belonging to the Israeli military, it added.

Among the sites targeted by Hezbollah were 186 Israeli settlements, 1,112 places along the Lebanese border with the occupied territories, 55 rear sites, and 51 aerial objects.

Hezbollah also noted that its attacks have displaced 230,000 Israeli settlers and led to the evacuation of 43 settlements within 5 kilometers of the border.

Hezbollah and Israel have been exchanging deadly fire since early October, shortly after the regime launched its Gaza onslaught following a surprise operation by the Palestinian Hamas resistance group.

Hezbollah has vowed to keep up its retaliatory operations as long as the Tel Aviv regime continues its brutal Gaza war, which has so far killed at least 34,305 Palestinians, mostly women and children, and injured 77,293 others.

Hezbollah fought off two Israeli wars against Lebanon in 2000 and 2006, forcing a humiliating retreat upon the occupation’s military on both occasions.
