Hezbollah launches ‘deepest attack’ on Israel since start of Gaza war

Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement said it had launched the deepest strike ever into the Israeli occupied territories since the regime began the current war in the besieged Gaza Strip in early October.

In a statement, Hezbollah said it “launched a combined aerial attack using diversionary and attack drones” against designated Israeli targets at 01:40 p.m. local time on Tuesday, stressing that they were hit with precision.

According to the Lebanese movement, the targets included “the headquarters of the Golani Brigade and the Egoz Unit 621 at Shraga Barracks north of the occupied city of Akko” within the occupying regime.

Hezbollah said the successful attack was carried out in retaliation for “Israel’s aggression on the town of Adloun and the assassination of one of our fighting brothers.”

It also accompanied the statement with what appeared to be a satellite photo, depicting the location of the strike symbolized by a flash with a red circle around it that sat halfway between Acre (Akko) and Nahariya to the north.

A day earlier, Hezbollah said it had carried out a missile strike against a gathering of the Israeli regime’s forces near the town of al-Dhahira in Tyre District in southern Lebanon.

The missile strike on Monday set off missile sirens in Galilee in the northern part of the occupied territories, reports said.

The Israeli regime has been conducting sporadic attacks on Lebanon since October 7, 2023, when it launched the genocidal war on Gaza. The attacks have prompted a firefight with Hezbollah. Some 350 people have been killed on the Lebanese border, including 68 civilians.

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.
