Hezbollah unveils new heavy rocket in attack on Israeli post

TEHRAN, May 13 (MNA) – The Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement has employed for the first time a heavy rocket to strike an Israeli military position in the northern sector of the 1948-occupied territories in retaliation for the bloody war on Gaza.

Hezbollah said in a brief statement that it had launched several Jihad Mughniyeh rockets, named after a member of the group who was killed in 2015 in an operation in Syria that was attributed to Israel, at a gathering of Israeli troops near the Zebdine site in the occupied Lebanese Shebaa Farms at 4:25 p.m. local time (1325 GMT) on Sunday.

Mughniyeh was the son of Imad Mughniyeh, a senior figure in Hezbollah who was assassinated in Damascus in 2008.

The statement added that the projectiles hit the designated targets precisely, and caused significant damage in the area.

Earlier, the Lebanese resistance fighters targeted an Israeli military vehicle, which had surveillance equipment mounted on, with several guided missiles.

Technical devices at the Hounin barracks were also hit and destroyed by a number of missiles.

Hezbollah fighters targeted surveillance equipment at the Israeli al-Malkia military outpost as well, destroying the devices.

Meanwhile, the Lebanese resistance group released footage of an operation in which its fighters targeted sites and surveillance equipment belonging to the Israeli military near the southern Lebanese border.

Hezbollah also documented separate strikes on the Ramia military site, and a building housing Israeli troops in Shtula moshav in the northern part of the Israeli-occupied lands.

The occupying Israeli regime has repeatedly launched attacks on southern Lebanon since October 7, after commencing a genocidal war in Gaza that has killed at least 35,034 Palestinians, predominantly women and children.

As a retaliatory measure, Hezbollah has been carrying out almost daily rocket attacks on Israeli positions.

At least 390 people have been killed on the Lebanese border, including more than 70 civilians.

Two Israeli wars waged against Lebanon in 2000 and 2006 were met with strong resistance from Hezbollah, resulting in the retreat of the regime in both conflicts.
