Israel Retaliates against Hezbollah after Rockets Fired from Lebanon

The Israeli army said on Sunday that its troops retaliated to a barrage of rocket strikes coming from Lebanon and hitting areas in the north of Israel.
In a statement on Telegram, the Israeli army said its warplanes raided a number of Hezbollah military targets in Lebanon, including infrastructure and military facilities, and several rocket launch pads, the Arab World News Agency reported.
On Saturday, Israel said it targeted a Hezbollah military position and several other areas in South Lebanon.
The statement added that several missiles were launched from the Lebanese side towards areas in North Israel and that its troops retaliated with heavy bombardment at the source of fire.
One of the Israeli soldiers was moderately injured as a result of the bombing that targeted the town of Al-Manara in northern Israel, it added.
Cross-border shelling escalated between the Israeli army on one hand and Hezbollah and armed Palestinian factions in Lebanon on the other following the outbreak of war in the Gaza Strip on October 7.
