Israeli warplanes wage violent strikes on southern Lebanese towns


Israeli warplanes on Sunday violently bombed the outskirts of the southern Lebanese border towns of Yaroun and Maroun al-Ras as artillery shelling targeted the peripheries of at least eight Lebanese border towns.

Hezbollah later announced that it attacked the Jal al-Allam Israeli post near Naqoura with the "appropriate weapons."

On Saturday, Hezbollah claimed responsibility for nine attacks, saying one targeted an Israeli post near the town of Metula. The Israeli army said one of its fighter jets struck a Hezbollah operational command center in Lebanon. The U.N. peacekeeping force in southern Lebanon said the tower of one of its bases along the border with Israel was hit during the skirmishes, with no injuries.

Since the Israel-Hamas war began on October 7, the frontier between Lebanon and Israel has seen intensifying exchanges of fire, mainly between the Israeli army and Hezbollah, raising fears of a broader conflagration.

More than 120 people have been killed on the Lebanese side since October, mostly Hezbollah fighters but also including more than a dozen civilians, according to an AFP tally.

Why would Hezbollah's popularity go up when they had nothing to do with your examples or as with one of your examples the rocket actually landed inside Lebanon? If you were trying to sound cleaver pick better examples next times because these show you are the opposite of cleaver.
2011 : This one fired from Lebanon and landed in Lebanon.
2014 : This one Hezbollah did do it was claimed by an Islamist AL Qaeda linked group.
2021 : Fired by Palestinian militants based in Lebanon. The Lebanese Army later said it had foiled an attempt by militants to fire a third rocket.

You forgot to mention the Aug 10, 2023 one when Hezbollah used a Druze village to launch rockets and got beat up by the residents. I doubt Hezbollah's popularity immediately going up after this.
