Israel bombs south as Hezbollah targets groups of soldiers
The Israeli army shelled Monday several border towns in south Lebanon as Hezbollah targeted groups of soldiers in northern Israel.
Hezbollah said it targeted several Israeli posts including Ruwaisat al-Alam, al-Baghdadi post, and groups of soldiers in Shtula, Misgav Am, Karm al-Touffah near the Branit Barracks and al-Raheb post. The group said all attacks were direct hits and inflicted casualties.
The Israeli army responded with airstrikes, artillery shelling, flares and white phosphorus shells on the outskirts of several Lebanese border towns including Odeisseh, Kfarkela, al-Naqoura, Kfarshouba, Mhaibib, Mays al-Jabal, Ayta al-Shaab, Yaroun, Dhaira, Halta, Marwahin, Ainata, Maroun el-Ras and Alma al-Shaab.
Twenty rockets were also fired from south Lebanon at an area in northern Israel between Shtula and Mattat.
In overnight clashes, three Israeli soldiers were injured in a mortar shell attack on Shtula, Israeli army Arabic-language spokesman Avichay Adraee said on X, while other mortar shells launched from Lebanon hit an Israeli post in Yiftah.
On Sunday, eight soldiers and three civilians were wounded by Hezbollah fire in the area of Beit Hillel.
