The daily skirmishes between the terror organization Hezbollah and the Israeli army, which began shortly after Oct. 7, continued on Monday with Israel responding to at least 10 attacks from Lebanese territory.
Three IDF soldiers were lightly wounded by mortar grenades that were fired at an IDF post near Shtula during the night, Israel Defense Forces announced on Monday morning.
The army also stated that an Israeli Air Force fighter jets successfully intercepted a hostile aircraft approaching Israeli airspace from Lebanon late on Sunday night.
At the time of the publication, Hezbollah had accepted responsibility for nine attacks against Israel throughout Monday, after seven such announcements the day before.
Shortly after the terror group’s latest statement, rockets were fired at the northern city of Kiryat Shmona in Israel.
Hezbollah’s attacks again followed the pattern established during the almost two months of fighting, with the attacks mainly being carried out with mortar grenades, rockets, and anti-tank-guided missiles.
Hezbollah targeted the Israeli areas of Mount Dov, Misgav Am, Kiryat Shmona, Manara, and Shtula, among others. No substantial damage or injuries were reported as a result of the attacks, apart from the three IDF soldiers reported injured overnight.
The Israeli army, as usual, responded with artillery fire at the launch areas and airstrikes at targets deeper in Lebanese territory. According to Lebanese reports, Israeli shelling targeted the areas of Ayta al-Sha’ab, Yaroun, and Mais al-Jabal near the border.
Israeli airstrikes by fighter jets and drones targeted operational headquarters, terrorist infrastructure, a weapons depot, as well as other military buildings in southern Lebanon, the IDF stated.
Also on Monday, the Lebanon branch of the Hamas terror organization announced the creation of a new terror group called the “Al-Aqsa Flood Guards,” aimed at recruiting young Palestinians living in Lebanon to fight against Israel.
“Our people, you young and heroic men, join the vanguard of the resistance and participate in shaping the future of your people, and in the liberation of Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque,” the terror group's statement read.
