Amidst the ongoing escalation between Hamas and Israel in the Gaza Strip, Lebanon’s Hezbollah Movement claimed responsibility for targeting Israeli troops in Northern Israel on Monday, using drones, artillery, and missiles.
Hezbollah fighters, backed by Iran, reportedly deployed three attack drones west of Kiryat Shmona in Northern Israel, followed by artillery fire in the same area.
Earlier, the group claimed to have fired “Burkan missiles” at an Israeli barracks and carried out additional attacks on Israeli positions.
Israel’s army confirmed the drone strikes, stating that three UAVs were identified near an army post, with no reported injuries.
The army reported 25 launches from Lebanon towards border areas, intercepting some and noting others falling in open areas.
In response, Israel targeted Hezbollah infrastructure in Lebanon, including tanks, a fighter jet, and a helicopter.
The conflict along the Israel-Lebanon border has intensified since the start of the Israel-Hamas conflict on October 7. The latest developments underscore the heightened tensions in the region, with both sides engaging in military actions and counteractions.
Details on the situation to follow.
