Israel-Hezbollah border skirmishes: Latest developments
The Israeli artillery shelled Friday several border towns including Blida, Dhaira, Rashaya al-Fokhar, Kfarshouba, Houla, Markaba, Aitaroun, al-Naqoura, Odeisseh, Maroun al-Ras, Mhaibib, al-Labbouneh, al-Naqoura and Shihine, as Hezbollah announced the death of one of its fighters.
One civilian was injured in Rashaya al-Fokhar.
Hezbollah for its part targeted Misgav Aam, Khirbet Ma'ar, al-Raheb post, and Ruwaisat al-Alam with "appropriate weapons".
At dawn, the Israeli army opened machinegun fire towards Lebanon and targeted with flares and shells open areas in the south, including the outskirts of Dayr Mimas, Kfakela and al-Khiam.
Since the Israel-Hamas war began on October 7, the frontier between Lebanon and Israel has seen intensifying exchanges of fire, mainly between Israel and Hezbollah, but also Palestinian groups, raising fears of a broader conflagration.
More than 110 people have been killed on the Lebanese side, mostly Hezbollah fighters and more than a dozen civilians, according to an AFP tally, since fighting began in October.
On the Israeli side, six soldiers and four civilians have been killed, according to Israeli authorities.
