Hezbollah’s rockets pound Israeli base after regime’s airstrikes

The Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah has fired rockets at an Israeli military base following airstrikes by the regime in eastern Lebanon.

“In response to the Zionist aggression near the city of Baalbek,” Hezbollah said on Monday, the resistance forces targeted the base in the occupied Golan Heights “with 60 Katyusha rockets.”

The Israeli military confirmed that dozens of rockets were launched from Lebanon on Monday afternoon.

Footage by Lebanese media outlets showed a plume of smoke rising from the vicinity of the Aadous plain in Buday, west of the city of Baalbek.

Hezbollah later announced two of its fighters had been killed by Israeli fire.

The Israeli military had said the strikes near Baalbek targeted Hezbollah air defense systems in response to the group downing one of its drones in south Lebanon earlier in the day.
