Hezbollah announced on Wednesday its fighters have fired missiles at an Israeli border post in retaliation to the Israeli aggression which killed three Islamic Resistance fighters on Monday.
In a statement, Hezbollah’s Media Relations Office affirmed that the Islamic Resistance is firm in retaliating Israeli aggression especially when martyrs fall in such attacks.
“In a decisive retaliation to Zionist aggression on Monday, October 9, 2023, which resulted in the martyrdom of three courageous fighters, the Mujahideen: Hussam Ibrahim, Ali Ftouni, and Ali Hodroj, the Islamic Resistance fighters targeted the Zionist Jerdah site, facing Lebanese area of Dhaira, with guided missiles,” the statement, carried by Al-Manar read.
“The operation resulted in several confirmed casualties among Israeli occupation soldiers,” the statement added.
“The Islamic Resistance reiterates its determination to provide a firm and unyielding response to Israeli assaults that threaten the security of our homeland and the well-being of our citizens, particularly when such actions result in the tragic loss of our martyrs.”
Sayyed Nasrallah has repeatedly warned the Zionist entity against staging attacks against targets belonging to Hezbollah, stressing that the Islamic Resistance in Lebanon will decisively retaliate for any Israeli aggression.
Meanwhile on Wednesday, Al-Manar correspondent in south Lebanon reported Israeli shelling of the Lebanese border area, including heights located in the vicinities of Dhaira, Yareen, Marwaheen and Teir Harfa.
Samer Al-Hajj Ali, our correspondent, added that sirens sound in the UNIFIL headquarters in Naqoura.
For its part, Israeli army’s Spokesperson’s Unit announced that the occupation military “launched retaliatory strikes at Lebanon on Wednesday after missiles were fired from Lebanese territory at an Israeli military position on the border.”
“The attack took place near the Israeli town of Arab al-Aramshe, opposite the Lebanese village of Dhaira,” The Jerusalem Post cited the Israeli army statement.
