Israel-Hezbollah border clashes: Latest developments


Hezbollah targeted Tuesday several Israeli military posts with guided missiles and artillery shells.

The group said it targeted the Ramia post from a short distance and another post in the occupied Kfarshouba Hills.

Israeli artillery meanwhile shelled Wadi Hamoul, the Marjayoun plain and the outskirts of al-Naqoura in south Lebanon.

Israeli warplanes had raided overnight the southern border town of Aita al-Shaab.

Hezbollah, a Hamas ally, has traded regular cross-border fire with Israel since the Palestinian militant group's October 7 attack on southern Israel which triggered war in the Gaza Strip.

In recent weeks Hezbollah has stepped up its cross-border attacks, which it says are in support of Gazans and its ally Hamas, while Israel has struck deeper into Lebanese territory.

The violence has killed at least 440 people in Lebanon, mostly militants but also including 84 civilians, according to an AFP tally.

Israel says 14 soldiers and 11 civilians have been killed on its side of the border.
