Hezbollah stops 2 Israeli attempts to cross into Ramia, Rmeish


Hezbollah repelled overnight two Israeli infiltration attempts from north Israel into south Lebanon.

The group said it targeted two Israeli forces with explosives, artillery shells and missiles as they attempted to infiltrate into Lebanese territory from Kherbet Zar'it and Wadi Qatmoun facing the southern border towns of Ramia and Rmeish.

Hezbollah later shelled the Zar'it barracks and targeted surveillance equipment in the Rweissat al-Alam post in the occupied Shebaa Farms, while Israeli warplanes and artillery struck Aita al-Shaab and Shihin and shelled Houla and Markaba with white phosphorus bombs.

Meanwhile Israeli media said that a person was killed and nine others were wounded, all foreign workers, after an anti-tank missile launched from Lebanon hit Margaliot in north Israel.

Hezbollah has been trading fire with Israeli forces along the Lebanon-Israel border near-daily since the beginning of Israel’s war on Gaza. The fighting has killed more than 200 Hezbollah fighters and at least 44 civilians in Lebanon and at least nine soldiers and nine civilians in Israel.

Hezbollah has said it will not halt its fire until there is a cease-fire in Gaza but would observe a truce if one is reached.

Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant has vowed to step up attacks on Hezbollah even if a cease-fire is reached with Hamas in the Gaza Strip, until the Lebanese militant group withdraws from the border area.

On Saturday, seven Hezbollah members were killed in strike on a house and a car in Ramia and Naqoura.
