EIn several publications, Hezbollah claimed responsibility for three attacks against Israeli Army positions, as well as two others against groups of soldiers and another that targeted a military vehicle parked inside a barracks, in the northern areas of the Jewish State.
The Shiite movement only detailed that, in all these attacks, its fighters used “appropriate weapons”, without specifying what type.
Israeli forces announced, in turn, that they intercepted a ‘drone’ today originating from Lebanese territory, also reporting launches made from across the border.
Israel today attacked infrastructure used by Hezbollah with fighter jets, tanks and artillery fire, in addition to launching two actions against two groups of fighters, accusing them of having fired projectiles into Israeli territory hours earlier.
Since October 8, the parties have been engaged in an exchange of attacks across the border, a crossfire that has intensified over time and triggered fears that Lebanon will become a second front in Israel’s war in Gaza.
Israel and Hamas have been fighting a war that has lasted 83 days, since the attack by the Palestinian Islamist movement that caused around 1,200 deaths, mostly civilians, according to an AFP count based on the latest official Israeli data.
In retaliation, Israel promised to destroy Hamas, bombed the Gaza Strip and launched a ground offensive on October 27.
Since the start of Israeli military operations, 21,320 people have been killed in Gaza, most of them women and children, according to the Gaza Ministry of Health, controlled by Hamas.
At least 118 people have been killed and another 536 injured in Lebanon since the start of the violence, which also forced more than 72,000 people to abandon their homes on that side of the border, according to the latest data released by the Lebanese Ministry of Public Health.
