Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah has conducted operations against two military facilities housing Israeli troops on the northern side of the 1948-occupied territories in response to the regime’s deadly strikes on southern Lebanon.

Hezbollah said in a statement that several Israeli soldiers were killed and injured on Monday as it targeted a gathering of the forces at the Manara kibbutz in the Upper Galilee region, which is adjacent to the Lebanese border and overlooking the Hula Valley, with “appropriate weapons”.

The statement added that the projectiles hit the designated targets precisely.

Separately, the Lebanese resistance fighters struck Israeli soldiers stationed at a building in the Yaron settlement in Western Galilee, leaving behind casualties at the site.

Hezbollah emphasized that the two operations were in solidarity with steadfast Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, in support of brave and heroic Palestinian resistance factions, and in reprisal for the Israeli enemy’s attacks on southern Lebanon regions, especially the village of Houla and Shebaa town.

It later targeted the Bayyad Blida post with a kamikaze drone, a building in Avivim in response to strikes on Aitaroun, and surveillance equipment in the Ramim barracks.

Hezbollah carried out on Sunday six attacks on Israeli posts in northern part of the 1948-occupied territories and in the occupied Kfarshouba Heights.

The developments came a day after Lebanese resistance fighters forced an Israeli fighter jet to leave Lebanese airspace after its missile defenses confronted the aircraft.

The Lebanese group said its fighters “launched anti-aircraft missiles at the enemy’s F-15 warplane, which was violating our airspace and breaking the sound barrier in an attempt to scare ordinary people.”

It added that the interception of the Israeli warplane by its missile defenses “forced it to retreat beyond the Lebanese borders.”

The Israeli regime has repeatedly attacked southern Lebanon since October 7, when it launched a ferocious war on Gaza that has killed at least 37,084 Palestinians, most of them women and children.

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

At least 455 people have been killed on the Lebanese border, according to an AFP tally.

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