Hezbollah unleashes missile strike on Israeli forces

TEHRAN, Apr. 22 (MNA) – Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement has carried out a missile strike against a gathering of the Israeli regime’s forces in southern Lebanon.

The movement announced the development in a statement, saying it had targeted the forces near the town of al-Dhahira in the country’s Tyre District on Monday.

The missile strike set off missile sirens in Galilee in the northern part of the occupied territories, Qatar’s Al Jazeera television network reported.

Hezbollah said it had conducted the Monday operation “in support of our steadfast Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip and in support of their brave and honorable resistance.”

The Israeli regime has been waging sporadic attacks against Lebanon since October 7, 2023, when it launched a genocidal war against Gaza. The attacks have prompted a firefight with Hezbollah.

On Sunday, the resistance group released a video showing its fighters shooting down an advanced Israeli drone over southern Lebanon after it violated the Arab country’s airspace.

Hezbollah said in a statement that the Israeli Hermes 450 drone had been shot down when “it was attacking our…people.”

Also on Sunday, Lebanon’s al-Mayadeen television network said some 62,000 Israeli settlers had fled areas lying in the northern part of the occupied territories amid fear of strikes by Hezbollah.

Hezbollah fought off two Israeli wars against Lebanon in 2000 and 2006, forcing a humiliating retreat upon the Tel Aviv regime’s military on both occasions.
