Israel- Hamas war: Hezbollah fires missiles at Israeli troops

Amid the continued escalation of the conflict between Hamas and Israel in Gaza Strip, Lebanon’s Hezbollah Movement said it targeted troops in Northern Israel with drones, artillery and missiles on Monday.

The Israel-Lebanon border has seen daily exchanges of fire since the Israel-Hamas conflict began on October 7.

Hezbollah fighters targeted soldiers west of Kiryat Shmona in Northern Israel “with three attack drones”, the Iran-backed group said in a statement, adding shortly after that it had also targeted troops in the area with artillery fire.

Earlier Monday, Hezbollah said it had fired “Burkan missiles” at an Israeli barracks, and also claimed a number of other attacks on Israeli positions.

Israel’s army said “three UAVs (drones) were identified striking adjacent” to an army post, without specifying where. It added that “no injuries were reported”.

In a statement, it said “25 launches were identified from Lebanon toward several locations adjacent to the border”, and added that aerial defences “intercepted a number of the launches and the rest fell in open areas”.

“Tanks, a fighter jet, and a helicopter struck Hezbollah terror infrastructure in Lebanon” in response to “launches toward Israeli territory”, it said, while the army struck fighters attempting to fire “anti-tank missiles” in south Lebanon.

Deadly skirmishes on Israel’s northern border began on October 7 when Gaza-based Palestinian militant group Hamas attacked Southern Israel, killing around 1,200 people and taking about 240 hostages, according to Israeli officials.
