Beirut: Rockets were fired from Lebanon’s border areas on the northern Israeli city of Avivim. The local media claimed that the move was in retaliation to the Israeli military attacks. The Israel military has placed its soldiers on high alert for the past few days while the Israeli agencies have warned that the state was at risk of attacks from Lebanon and Hezbollah.
A Hezbollah-linked news agency alleged that Israel had launched attacks with tanks on the Lebanese border on Sunday morning. The IDF tank shells had landed in the Shebaa Farms and Kfarchouba in Lebanon. Furthermore, the Lebanese military accused that an Israeli drone had also freshly violated the Lebanese airspace and launched explosives inside the Lebanese border. The IDF has not responded to Lebanon’s claims.
However, on Sunday afternoon, anti-tank missile attacks were made on Israel’s Avivim from the southern Lebanese border, the IDF informed. The Israeli citizens took cover under bomb shelters. The Israeli military anticipates more attacks on Israel from the Lebanese army and Hezbollah. After the attacks, the Israeli army ordered the Northern Command to be in a state of readiness and has instructed soldiers on leave to report back immediately.
Last week, the Israel military carried out three attacks with drones and fighter jets in Lebanon. The Israel security agencies had affirmed destroying the Hezbollah warehouse with missile arsenal in the first attack. The Hezbollah chief, Hassan Nasrallah, was infuriated with the assault and had threatened to avenge them soon. Israel will have to pay the price for the attacks, in the next few hours, Nasrallah stated.
Israeli Foreign Minister Yisrael Katz had responded to Nasrallah’s threat. Katz reprimanded Lebanon sharply saying, ‘If Lebanon launches attacks, in the coming times, at the instance of Nasrallah, he will be remembered as the destroyer of Lebanon. Nasrallah is an Iranian puppet and Lebanon should thus stop dancing to his tune.’
