Hezbollah fired more than 100 rockets towards Israel: Report

Posted on

The Israeli army on Tuesday claimed nearly 100 rockets were fired from Lebanon towards northern Israel and the occupied Golan Heights.

The Israeli Army Radio, which described the firing of the rockets as “heavy bombardment”, said no injuries or material damage was reported.

According to the Times of Israel news website, the rockets were fired in two barrages – 70 rockets were fired at northern Israel, and 30 were fired at the occupied Syrian Golan Heights.

The Israeli media published videos showing some of the rockets being intercepted by the Israeli Iron Dome air defense system.

Meanwhile, the Hezbollah group leader Hasan Nasrallah met with a top delegation from the Palestinian Hamas group, headed by Khalil Al-Hayya, deputy of Hamas leader in Gaza.

They discussed the field situation in Gaza and the West Bank, as well as the indirect negotiations aimed at ending the Israeli war on Gaza, according to a statement by the Hezbollah group.

Tension has flared along the border between Lebanon and Israel amid intermittent exchanges of weapons fire between Israeli forces and Hezbollah, in the deadliest clashes since the two sides fought a full-scale war in 2006. The genocide is underway since October 7, 2023.

Israel has waged a retaliatory offensive on Gaza, killing more than 31,100 Palestinians and injuring over 72,000 others amid mass destruction and shortages of necessities.

Israel has also imposed a crippling blockade on the Palestinian enclave, leaving its population, particularly residents of northern Gaza, on the verge of starvation.

About 85% of Gazans have been displaced by the Israeli onslaught amid acute shortages of food, clean water, and medicine, while 60% of the enclave’s infrastructure has been damaged or destroyed, according to the UN.

Israel is accused of genocide at the International Court of Justice, which in an interim ruling in January ordered Tel Aviv to stop genocidal acts and take measures to guarantee that humanitarian assistance is provided to civilians in Gaza.
