Hezbollah, a Shiite military organization based in Lebanon, launched an attack on seven Israeli army positions along the border with Lebanon, representing a significant development in the ongoing conflict.
Using guided missiles and special weapons, Hezbollah fighters directed their attacks to Israeli facilities in the occupied Shebaa fields and the Kafr Shuba hills. The affected areas include Al-Ramthah, Zibdin, Al-Radar, Ruwaisat Al-Qarn, Ruwaisat Al-Alam and the Al-Asi site. Israeli forces quickly responded with artillery.
Hezbollah is known for maintaining a diverse arsenal of missiles and rockets, equipped with various ranges, including some with the capacity to penetrate deep into Israeli territory. The acquisition and development of these weapons received support from Iran. According to Sayyid Hassan Nasrallah, secretary general of Hezbollah, the organization has more than 100,000 rockets.
Additionally, in Yemen, the Houthis pose another threat to Israel. The Pentagon reported the interception of ballistic missiles and drones launched from Yemen in the direction of Israel. The Israeli army has expressed its readiness to defend itself against possible attacks from Yemen. The spokesman of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Admiral Daniel Hagari emphasized the effectiveness of Israel’s advanced air defenses, which is considered one of the best in the world, and expressed confidence in Israel’s ability to deal with these threats.
It is important to remember that the situation in the Middle East remains unstable, with many actors involved in the conflict, and in the Gaza Strip, Israel continues a siege that has resulted in the loss of Palestinian lives.
