Hezbollah, a Lebanese militant group, launched a barrage of rockets into northern Israel’s Shmona in response to an Israeli airstrike on the southern Lebanese village of Mais al-Jabal.

Hezbollah claimed to have fired “dozens of Katyusha and Falaq rockets” at Kiryat Shmona in northern Israel and later targeted Israeli troops and vehicles along the border. The Israeli army reported intercepting 40 rockets, with no reported casualties at the time of the statement.

The exchange of fire between Hezbollah and Israel follows the Israeli strike on Mais al-Jabal, which resulted in the deaths of four members of a single family, including a couple and their two children aged 12 and 21

Hezbollah has time and again claimed that it will continue to attack Israel in solidarity with Hamas untill a ceasefire is achieved in Gaza.

Around 390 people have been killed in Lebanon in last seven months, including 70 civilians.

These incidents occurred amidst stalled ceasefire talks in Cairo, where Israel refrained from participating due to concerns over Hamas’ intentions.
