The Islamic Resistance in Lebanon swiftly retaliated against the Israeli deliberate targeting of journalists from Al-Mayadeen Channel, including the martyrs Farah Omar and Rabih Al-Me’mari, alongside other civilian casualties.
In a resolute response, the Resistance carried out a series of ten intensive operations targeting Israeli sites and bases.
These actions were not only a show of solidarity with the steadfast Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip but also a robust endorsement of their courageous and honorable resistance.
Furthermore, in direct response to the recent targeting of the aluminum factory in Al-Kfour, in South Lebanon, the Islamic Resistance targeted a factory owned by the Israeli Rafael Military Industries Company in the Shlomi area.
In a series of statements on Tuesday afternoon, the Islamic Resistance emphatically declared its unwavering support for the Palestinian people and their resistance, responding decisively to provocations by the enemy against journalists from Al-Mayadeen Channel and civilians.
In an initial and swift response to the targeted attacks on journalists from Al-Mayadeen channel and the consequent loss of martyrs, the Islamic Resistance took decisive action on Tuesday, 21-11-2023.
The resistance fighters targeted a force affiliated with Israeli military intelligence, identified as the ‘Military Assembly,’ situated in a house on the outskirts of Al-Manara settlement.
Executing the operation with precision, two guided missiles were deployed, leading to casualties among its members.
Secondly, resistance fighters targeted a gathering of enemy soldiers within a residence in the Avivim settlement at 03:45 (Beirut Time), employing guided missiles that inflicted casualties among the members present.
In another strategic move, the Mujahideen of the Islamic Resistance bombed at 04:10 (Beirut Time) the Beit Hilal military base with Grad (Katyusha) missiles, achieving a direct hit on the facility. This action served as a resolute response to enemy aggression and a testament to the Resistance’s commitment to supporting the Palestinian cause.
Additionally, in retaliation for the Zionist enemy’s bombing of the aluminum factory in the Al-Kfour area, north of Nabatieh, the Mujahideen at 4:15 on Tuesday launched missiles at a factory owned by the Israeli Rafael Military Industries Company in the Shlomi area, resulting in a direct hit.
The Islamic Resistance continued its targeted operations, hitting the Jal al-Deir site and a gathering of occupation soldiers at the al-Malkieh site with precision weaponry, causing direct hits. An enemy tank near the Notoa settlement was also targeted and directly hit with appropriate weapons.
Notably, one of the most prominent Israeli artillery positions in the western sector was targeted with heavy Burkan missiles, and the Zionist “Jal al-Alam” site at the Naqoura border in the western sector of southern Lebanon was subjected to resistance missile strikes. Furthermore, the Al-Manara settlement in the eastern sector was hit by missiles, targeting a military installation.
Israeli media reported the launch of two anti-tank missiles from Lebanon toward the Avivim settlement, underscoring the Resistance’s proactive stance against aggressions.
The retaliation underscores the resilience and solidarity of the Islamic Resistance with the brave Palestinian people in Gaza, emphasizing that victory is sought through steadfastness against oppression.
Earlier in the day, Hezbollah Media Relations issued a statement vehemently condemning the heinous crime, extending deepest condolences to colleagues at Al-Mayadeen Channel and the families of the two martyrs, and asserting that such aggression and the accompanying martyrdom of fellow citizens will not go unanswered.
“We assert that this aggression and the accompanying martyrdom of fellow citizens will not go unanswered from the Mujahideen of the Islamic Resistance, who are engaging the enemy in the field with the most remarkable heroism and redemption,” Hezbollah said hours before the operation took place.
