Hezbollah targets Israel’s military positions in pro-Palestine retaliatory strikes

Hezbollah has struck Israeli military positions in the northern part of the 1948 Israeli-occupied territories in retaliatory operations in support of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

Lebanon’s al-Mayadeen television said the group separately targeted two gatherings of Israeli troops inside Shomera and Shlomi settlements in the predawn hours of Tuesday with appropriate weapons.

Hezbollah said in a statement that the operations came in solidarity with steadfast Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, in support of their brave and honorable resistance factions, and in response to the Israeli aggression on southern Lebanese villages and residential buildings.

The Lebanese resistance movement also mourned the loss of its fighter Hussein Ali Dbouk, a resident of Chabriha town in southern Lebanon.

“The Zionist enemy, therefore, cannot cherish the idea of attacking Lebanon,” Hezbollah Deputy Secretary General Sheikh Naim Qassem said.

The Israeli regime has been attacking southern Lebanon off and on since October 7, when it launched the devastating campaign of death and destruction in Gaza, killing more than 23,200 Palestinians.

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

At least 322 people have been killed on the Lebanese border, including 56 civilians.

Israel says at least ten of its troopers and seven 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, which have been pummeled by 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.
