Fighters from the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement have carried out a strike against Israeli military positions in the northern side of the 1948 occupied territories in response to brutal aggression against the Gaza Strip.

Lebanon’s media outlets reported that Hezbollah fighters targeted on Friday a group of soldiers in the al-Malkia post, causing casualties in the targeted area.

The development came a day after the Israeli military announced that a soldier had been killed in a Hezbollah mortar and missile attack on an army position in Malkia on Wednesday.

The slain soldier was named as staff sergeant Haim Sabach, 20, of the so-called border defense corps’ 869th combat intelligence collection unit. Another soldier was lightly hurt in the attack, the Israeli military added.

The Hezbollah resistance group claimed responsibility for launching anti-tank guided missiles and mortars from Lebanon at Israeli military positions in the Malkia area.

In return, the Israeli military said it had carried out several waves of strikes against Hezbollah positions in southern Lebanon.

Hezbollah conducts retaliatory drone attack on Israeli military command

Meanwhile, Hezbollah launched on Thursday a drone attack on an Israeli military command in the Kfar Giladi settlement on the northern flank of the Israeli-occupied lands, causing casualties among Israeli officers.

The Lebanese resistance group said in a statement that the attack was carried out with multiple drones in retaliation for Israel's assassination of three of its members in Lebanon's southern village of Bafliyeh.

Unnamed Lebanese military sources said one of the air-to-air missiles fired by Israeli aircraft toward the drones fell and exploded in the vicinity of Lebanon's southeastern village of Khiam, while several other missiles fired by the Israeli Iron Dome missile system at the drones exploded in the airspace of the border area in southern Lebanon.

The sources noted that Israel carried out five airstrikes and fired about 30 shells on several sites and border towns and villages in southern Lebanon.

They said about 30 surface-to-surface missiles and several barrages of rockets were launched from Lebanon toward the occupied lands.

The Israeli regime has repeatedly attacked southern Lebanon since October 7, when it launched a genocidal war on Gaza that has killed at least 34,904 Palestinians, most of them women and children.

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

At least 390 people have been killed on the Lebanese border, including more than 70 civilians.

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