Hezbollah hits Israeli military outpost in solidarity with Gazans

Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement has continued its strikes on Israeli military positions in the northern flank of the 1948 occupied territories, demonstrating solidarity with Palestinians amid the ongoing Israeli onslaught on Gaza.

Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television news channel, citing a Hezbollah statement, reported that the group targeted a gathering of Israeli soldiers in the vicinity of the Ramia site on Saturday morning with a salvo of artillery shells.

The statement underscored that the operation came in solidarity with steadfast Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip, and in support of their resistance against relentless Israeli air and ground strikes.

Lebanon’s official National News Agency said an Israeli strike on the southern border town of Aita al-Shaab killed two people and injured another on Friday.

One Israeli soldier and three Lebanese civilians were earlier wounded in overnight cross-border fire between Hezbollah and the Israeli military.

The three Lebanese civilians were injured in an overnight strike on the southern border town of Kfarhamam in the Arqoob region, while the Israeli army said Friday that one soldier was wounded in a Hezbollah overnight attack on Metula.

Later on Friday, Israeli warplanes bombed Kfarkela, Tayr Harfa, Aita al-Shaab, the outskirts of Shebaa and houses in Zalloutieh and Yarin.

Hezbollah resistance fighters, in response, targeted the Hadb Yaroun post, a group of soldiers in Manara, and surveillance equipment in the Zar’it barracks.

An Israeli tank also shelled Kfarkela and al-Khiam towns in southern Lebanon.

The Israeli regime has repeatedly attacked southern Lebanon since October 7, when it launched a genocidal war on Gaza that has killed at least 33,091 Palestinians, most of them women and children, so far.

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

At least 349 people have been killed on the Lebanese border, including 68 civilians.

Israel says at least ten soldiers and eight settlers have been killed in the area.

The fighting has forced the evacuation of tens of thousands from the northern part of the occupied territories, amid rocket fire and shelling carried out by Hezbollah and allied Palestinian groups.

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