In an initial and swift response to the targeted attacks on journalists from Al-Mayadeen channel and the consequent loss of martyrs, including Reporter Farah Omar and Photographer Rabei’ Al-Maamari, the Islamic Resistance took decisive action on Tuesday, 21-11-2023.
The resistance fighters targeted a force affiliated with Israeli military intelligence, identified as the ‘Military Assembly,’ situated in a house on the outskirts of Al-Manara settlement.
Executing the operation with precision, two guided missiles were deployed, leading to casualties among its members.
The retaliation underscores the resilience and solidarity of the Islamic Resistance with the brave Palestinian people in Gaza, emphasizing that victory is sought through steadfastness against oppression.
Earlier in the day, Hezbollah Media Relations issued a statement vehemently condemning the heinous crime, extending deepest condolences to colleagues at Al-Mayadeen Channel and the families of the two martyrs, and asserting that such aggression and the accompanying martyrdom of fellow citizens will not go unanswered.
“We assert that this aggression and the accompanying martyrdom of fellow citizens will not go unanswered from the Mujahideen of the Islamic Resistance, who are engaging the enemy in the field with the most remarkable heroism and redemption,” Hezbollah said hours before the operation took place.
