Israeli army says it began a wave of attacks on Lebanon



The Israeli army said on Wednesday that it has begun an extensive wave of attacks on Lebanese territories after rockets fired from Lebanon hit the city of Safed in northern Israel.

Lebanese security sources said at least ten Israeli airstrikes hit the Iqlim al Tuffah region near the market-town of Nabatiyeh as well as Chabaiyeh and Sawaneh.

“All are Hezbollah strongholds. The sources said that plumes of black smoke covered parts of Iqlim al Tuffah hill.”

Earlier, Israeli media reports said a woman was killed in a rocket strike in the city of Safed in northern Israel on Wednesday.

The media also reported that the attack came from neighbouring Lebanon, citing the head of the Magen David Adom rescue service, Eli Bin.

The rescue service had previously reported seven injuries as a result of the rocket strikes.

Since the beginning of the Gaza war after the Hamas massacre in Israel on Oct. 7, there have been repeated confrontations between Israel’s army and militant groups such as Hezbollah in the Israeli-Lebanese border region.

The Iranian-backed Shiite militia had since reported almost 200 fighters killed in its own ranks. Civilians were also killed on both sides.

Tens of thousands of residents also left their towns in both countries.

It is the worst escalation since the second Lebanon war in 2006.
