Hezbollah targets Israeli military site in fresh drone strike
Fighters from the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement have targeted a military site in the north of the Israeli-occupied territories, amid exchanges of near-daily fire between the two sides since the occupying regime launched its assault on Gaza.
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA) - Monitoring: Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television news network, citing a Hezbollah statement, reported that the group struck the headquarters of the Upper Galilee Regional Council in Kiryat Shmona city with two drones on Friday with targets being hit precisely.
Hezbollah noted that the drone strike was in retaliation for recent Israeli strikes on “southern villages and civilian homes,” including yesterday’s strike on a civil defense center at Blida border village in southern Lebanon.
The Hezbollah-linked Islamic Health Committee said two of its paramedics were killed in a “direct” Israeli attack on a civil defense center in Blida, while Hezbollah also announced the death of one of its fighters.
The Islamic Health Committee said the attack caused “the destruction of the health center as well as a number of ambulances.”
The night before, Hezbollah also fired rockets at Israeli barracks in response to the Blida attack but did not announce any casualties at the time.
Two other Hezbollah fighters were also martyred on Thursday in an Israeli drone strike on a residential building in Kfar Rumman, near the southern Lebanese city of Nabatiyeh.
Hezbollah retaliated with rocket fire and launched “dozens of Katyusha rockets” at two Israeli barracks. It later called one of the two fighters martyred a “commander.”
On Friday, a Lebanese army soldier was wounded in al-Wazzani as the Israeli military targeted the border town with heavy machine-gun fire and artillery shells.
