Hezbollah fighters thwart Israeli military incursion into southern Lebanon

Fighters from the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement have thwarted an Israeli military incursion into the southern part of Lebanon, amid strikes by the group against the regime’s positions, in response to the ongoing Israeli genocidal campaign in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Manar television channel, citing a Hezbollah statement, reported that the group had targeted a gathering of Israeli forces stationed at an outpost in the town of Zar’it, close to the border with Lebanon, early on Monday. A number of the soldiers were injured as a result.

The statement added that the troops were preparing to carry out an offensive against an area in southern Lebanon.

The development came hours after Hezbollah announced in a separate statement that it had launched a heavy-caliber Burkan (Volcano) missile at 4:45 p.m. (1445 GMT) on Sunday, targeting a gathering of Israeli soldiers at the Hadab al-Bustan site. There were casualties among the forces.

Lebanese resistance fighters also targeted Israeli soldiers at an outpost in Ruwaisat al-Qarn area in the occupied Shebaa Farms with a salvo of rockets, causing casualties among the forces.

The Israeli regime launched its devastating hostilities in the Gaza Strip on October 7 after the territory’s Hamas-led Palestinian resistance groups carried out a surprise retaliatory attack, dubbed Operation Al-Aqsa Storm, against the occupying entity.

The Israeli military has also been carrying out attacks against the Lebanese territory since then, prompting retaliatory strikes from Lebanon’s resistance movement Hezbollah in support of the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip.

The movement has vowed to keep up its retaliatory operations as long as the Tel Aviv regime continues its onslaught on Gaza.

The Israeli campaign in Gaza has killed at least 25,105 people, most of them women and children. More than 62,000 individuals have also been wounded.
