Majdal Zoun mourns 6-year-old Amal as border clashes drag


Hezbollah targeted Thursday a command center in Kiryat Shmona and a group of soldiers in a house in the Yuval settlement in northern Israel.

Hezbollah later targeted two Israeli posts in the occupied Shebaa Farms and surveillance equipment in the Berkat Risha post.

The Israeli army for its part shelled the Hamames hill and the outskirts of Aita al-Shaab and Rashayya al-Fokhar, while Israeli warplanes bombed al-Khiam, Kfarkila and Maroun al-Rass.

Mourners meanwhile gathered in the southern town of Majdal Zoun to attend the funeral of two civilians killed in an Israeli air strike on Wednesday, including six-year-old Amal al-Durr.

The strike Wednesday that had killed al-Durr, also killed another woman and critically wounded her daughter, prompting Hezbollah to retaliate with several rockets at the Matzuva settlement in north Israel.

Hezbollah also claimed responsibility for 12 other operations against Israeli military positions on the border Wednesday.

The cross-border exchanges since October have killed at least 271 people on the Lebanese side, most of them Hezbollah fighters but also including 42 civilians, according to an AFP tally.

On the Israeli side, 10 soldiers and six civilians have been killed, according to the Israeli army.
