Hezbollah launches massive rocket attack after deadly Israeli strike

Fighters from the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement have conducted a massive rocket attack against Israeli military installations on the northern side of the 1948 Israeli-occupied territories after several family members were killed in an Israeli strike on a southern Lebanon village.

The Lebanese group said in a statement that it fired “dozens of Katyusha and Falaq rockets” at Kiryat Shmona city near the Lebanese border “in response to the horrific crime that the Israeli enemy committed in Meiss Ej Jabal” which killed and wounded civilians.

The Israeli army said that a barrage of some 65 rockets was fired from Lebanon at the Galilee Panhandle. 

Lebanon’s al-Manar television channel reported that Hezbollah forces targeted surveillance equipment stationed inside the Israeli al-Malikiyah military base. The strike destroyed the designated targets precisely.

The Lebanese resistance fighters also shelled a building inside Avivim moshav, causing casualties in the area.

Several illegal settlers sustained injuries when Hezbollah rockets slammed into a building at Shtula moshav in the Upper Galilee region near the Lebanese border.

This comes as Lebanon's state-run National News Agency said the strike against Meiss Ej Jabal village killed “four people from a single family,” updating an earlier reported toll of three dead in the Israeli aerial raid.

It identified them as a man, a woman and their children aged 12 and 21.

The Israeli regime has repeatedly attacked southern Lebanon since October 7, when it launched a genocidal war on Gaza that has killed at least 34,683 Palestinians, most of them women and children.

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

At least 390 people have been killed on the Lebanese border, including 72 civilians.

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.
