Hezbollah fires 100 rockets at Israeli targets after regime attacks Beqaa Valley

Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement has fired scores of rockets at Israeli targets in the northern part of the occupied Palestinian territories, following airstrikes by the Tel Aviv regime targeting a strategic region in the Arab country.

In a statement, Hezbollah said its fighters attacked “the Israeli air and missile command center in the Keila barracks” with more than 100 rockets, along with “the missile and artillery base in Yoav” and nearby artillery centers.

The resistance movement said the reprisal attack was conducted “in support of the steadfast Palestinian nation in the Gaza Strip” and “in response to the Israeli attacks on our people, villages and cities, including the most recent one in the vicinity of the city of Baalbek” that killed one person and injured several others.

The regime’s military confirmed that some 100 rockets were fired in two different barrages on Tuesday morning, claiming that some of them were intercepted.

The rockets targeted the Upper Galilee region and the occupied Golan Heights, the Israeli military said, but claimed there were no immediate reports of damage or casualties.

The attack triggered rocket sirens in Snir, Ghajar and She’ar Yashuv in the northern Galilee as well as Ein Qiniyye in the occupied Golan Heights.

That came following overnight airstrikes that targeted the Beqaa Valley region of Lebanon.

The Israeli military released footage of its overnight airstrikes against two targets in the Beqaa Valley region of Lebanon, saying it had attacked two sites that Hezbollah used to launch aircraft into the Israeli occupied territories.

Meanwhile, the Israeli military claimed that it had targeted the source of the launches from Lebanon in response to the attack.

Hezbollah and Israel have been exchanging fire since early October, shortly after the occupying regime launched its war on Gaza.

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

Israel waged its genocidal war on Gaza on October 7 after the Palestinian Hamas resistance group carried out Operation Al-Aqsa Storm against the usurping entity in retaliation for its intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.

The Tel Aviv regime has also imposed a “complete siege” on the territory, cutting off fuel, electricity, food and water to the more than two million Palestinians living there.

Since the start of the offensive, the Tel Aviv regime has killed over 31,000 Palestinians and injured more than 72,000 others.
