Israel says struck 10 Hezbollah targets in Rashaya al-Fukhar

The Israeli army on Monday said its warplanes attacked around ten Hezbollah targets in the southern town of Rashaya al-Fukhar.

The Israeli military said the targets included a military depot, launch positions and other infrastructure.

Hezbollah had announced eight attacks on Israeli military posts on Sunday, as Israel said that it managed to kill a senior Hezbollah missile unit commander.

Hezbollah, which has a powerful arsenal of rockets and missiles, has exchanged regular fire with Israeli forces since its ally, Palestinian militant group Hamas, carried out an unprecedented attack on southern Israel on October 7, triggering war in Gaza.

Cross-border fire since the start of the Israel-Hamas war in Gaza on October 7 has killed at least 348 people in Lebanon, mostly Hezbollah fighters, and at least 68 civilians, according to an AFP tally. Israeli strikes have also killed Hezbollah fighters in Syria.

The fighting has displaced tens of thousands in southern Lebanon and in northern Israel, where the military says 10 soldiers and eight civilians have been killed, and Israeli has threatened an operation against Hezbollah to push it away from the border.

Hezbollah meanwhile says it is targeting Israel in support of the embattled Palestinian people and Hamas amid a brutal war on Gaza that has so far killed at least 32,782 people, mostly women and children.
