Israeli airstrikes and shelling target southern towns as Hezbollah attacks post
Israeli warplane and drone strikes as well as artillery shelling on Sunday targeted several Lebanese southern towns near the frontier.
At dawn, an Israeli drone bombed a supermarket between the towns of Tayr Harfa and al-Jibbain, causing major damage to the building and affecting the neighboring buildings.
And as artillery shelling targeted homes in al-Dhayra, the Israeli army fired machineguns at the town of Kfarkela.
Airstrikes also targeted the area between Ramia, Aita al-Shaab and al-Qawzah, an agricultural land in Houla and the outskirts of Zibqin, Majdal Zoun and Tayr Harfa, amid artillery shelling on Chihin, Umm al-Tout, Majdal Zoun and Tayr Harfa.
Hezbollah later said that it targeted a gathering of Israeli troops east of the Birkat Risha post with missiles, achieving casualties.
Since the outbreak of war between Hamas and Israel on October 7, the Lebanese-Israeli border has witnessed a daily exchange of fire between Israel's army and Hezbollah. At least 206 people have been killed in south Lebanon, 151 of them belonging to Hezbollah.
The fighting has also displaced tens of thousands of residents on both sides of the border and Israel has warned that it is ready to use military force to return its settlers to their homes.
