Israel-Hamas War: Hezbollah Responds to Israeli Attack in East Lebanon with Rockets

On Monday, the IDF struck eastern Lebanon for the first time since October 7.

Hezbollah announced this Tuesday that it had fired rockets at an Israeli aerial observation post, a day after an IDF bombardment in Lebanon's Bekaa Plain.

The Israeli strikes, which killed at least two in the ranks of the Iran-backed Shiite movement Hezbollah, were the first to target eastern Lebanon since the Gaza war broke out.

Hezbollah fired sixty rockets at an Israeli base in the Golan Heights on Monday.

He did not specify the size of the devices used on Tuesday, referring to a “huge salvo” of rockets. Israel and Hezbollah have increased exchanges of fire and cross-border attacks since the start of the war in the Gaza Strip, triggered by a Hamas attack on Israeli territory on October 7.

Expanding the conflict

Israel mainly bombs southern Lebanon, near the border, although it has targeted more northern targets in recent weeks.

A source close to the Lebanese security services commented that Monday's strikes in the Bekaa Plain, considered Hezbollah's stronghold, marked an expansion of this Israeli campaign.

About fifty civilians have been killed in Lebanon in Israeli attacks since October 7, and about 200 Hezbollah fighters have also been killed, according to official figures.

Five civilians were killed and about ten Israeli soldiers were killed in attacks against Israeli territory from Lebanon.
