Hamas and Hezbollah launch coordinated attacks on Israel

The armed wing of Hamas, the Al Qasam brigades, and the Lebanese Shiite group Hezbollah launched separate attacks this Wednesday from Lebanon against Israel.

The armed wing of Hamas, the Al Qasam brigades, and the Lebanese Shiite group Hezbollah launched separate attacks this Wednesday from Lebanon against Israel, whose Army responded with fire, in the midst of the worst escalation on the Lebanese-Israeli border since 2006.

In a statement via Telegram, Hamas reported that the Al Qasam brigades bombed from southern Lebanon “with two salvos composed of 40 ‘Grad’ rockets” several communities in northern Israel, in response “to the Zionist massacres against civilians in the Strip of Gaza” and the death of militiamen in southern Lebanon.

For its part, the Israeli Army claimed to have identified only about ten rockets fired from Lebanon, several of them “successfully intercepted” while one reportedly damaged a building in the Israeli town of Kiryat Shmona.

In retaliation, the Israeli Armed Forces attacked with fighter jets “a Hezbollah weapons storage facility and military structures in the Ramyeh area of southern Lebanon,” according to a military statement, in addition to a night attack on “ a weapons manufacturing site” in the Khirbet Selm area.

For its part, Hezbollah claimed responsibility for three rocket attacks against Israel: one against Israeli soldiers deployed in the vicinity of Birkat Risha, another against the site of Al Samaqa, in the Golan Heights, and another against the town of Al Ramtha.

The Israeli Army confirmed that it identified “several launches from Lebanon towards Israel”, some of which fell on Lebanese soil and the rest in depopulated areas of Israeli territory, without causing casualties.

In retaliation, the Army opened fire on Hezbollah military infrastructure in the areas of Al Saqi, Bint Jbeil, Yarine, Kafra, Seddiqine and Houla.

On Tuesday, Hezbollah launched more than 50 rockets and an anti-tank missile at Israeli military installations, and two days ago, the Shiite group launched about 60 rockets at an Israeli Army barracks in response to the death of two of its members in the valley of Bekaa, southern Lebanon, in one of the worst days of crossfire since the start of the war in Gaza.

The border between Israel and Lebanon is experiencing its highest peak of tension since 2006 with an intense exchange of fire, which has claimed the lives of more than 300 people, 219 of them in the ranks of Hezbollah, which has also confirmed some casualties in Syria. .

In Israel, sixteen people have died on the northern border (ten soldiers and six civilians); while on the other side of the border at least 286 have died, including some 32 members of Palestinian militias, one soldier and 34 civilians, in addition to Hezbollah militiamen.
