Lebanon launches series of rockets towards northern Israel

(MENAFN) On Wednesday, a series of rockets were launched from southern Lebanon, targeting the Galilee finger and Upper Galilee regions in northern Israel. This attack triggered air raid sirens in Safed, Tiberias, and several other towns in the Upper Galilee. The Israeli army noted that this was the first time sirens had sounded in Tiberias since last October, reflecting a significant escalation in hostilities.

Israeli media reported multiple explosions, suggesting that rocket interception systems had been activated in both the Upper and Lower Galilee to neutralize the incoming threats. These interceptions underline the increasing tensions and the preparedness of Israeli defense mechanisms to counter such attacks.

Hezbollah has claimed responsibility for the rocket barrage, announcing that it had fired dozens of Katyusha rockets at the artillery regiment's headquarters in the Yarden barracks, located in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. This deliberate targeting of military facilities highlights the strategic nature of Hezbollah's offensive.

The conflict intensified as Hezbollah announced the death of one of its leaders, Talib Sami Abdullah, who was killed in an Israeli airstrike on the southern Lebanese town of Joya. According to a Lebanese security source, this airstrike resulted in the deaths of four individuals, including a commander of a Hezbollah military unit.

These events signify a marked increase in the conflict between Hezbollah and Israel, underscoring the region's volatile atmosphere and the potential for further escalation. The continuous exchanges between the two sides reveal deep-rooted tensions and a relentless cycle of retaliation, raising concerns about the future stability of the area.
