Hezbollah announced launching two fresh attacks on Israeli military posts on Sunday morning.

In a statement, the group said it targeted with missiles a gathering of Israeli troops near the Ramim barracks, achieving “direct hits.”

In another statement, Hezbollah said it fired two Falaq-1 missiles at the Zibdine barracks in the occupied Shebaa Farms.

The Israeli army meanwhile fired artillery shells at the outskirts of the southern border town of Aita al-Shaab.

Hezbollah also mourned two more of its fighters, saying they were killed “on the road to Jerusalem,” a phrase referring to fighters killed in Israeli strikes.

Media reports meanwhile said that the two fighters were likely killed in an Israeli airstrike on a truck in Syria’s Qusayr.

Hezbollah had announced 10 attacks on Israeli posts on Saturday, saying they were in support of Gaza and in response to attacks on Lebanese towns and civilian homes.

Since October, at least 276 people have been killed on the Lebanese side of the border, most of them Hezbollah fighters but also including 44 civilians. On the Israeli side, 10 soldiers and six civilians have been killed, according to the Israeli army.

The fighting has also displaced tens of thousands of residents on both sides of the border and Israel has repeatedly warned that it might use bigger force against Hezbollah to secure its residents' return.

Does the LAF have no control whatsoever over what goes on on the southern border of the country? Or have they just decided that it has nothing to do with the Republic of Lebanon?

It saddens me when young Lebanese men die for the sake of weak Iranian mullahs and on the road to nowhere. God is Love and Life. There is no glory in death unless you can come back to life and defeat Death like the Lord Jesus did. May they rest in peace.
