Israel-Hamas war: Hezbollah fires dozens of missiles at Israel

Hezbollah fired a barrage of 40 rockets from southern Lebanon at Israel, as the country braced for a major attack by Iran.

Some experts suggested the attack, which did not cause any injuries, was an attempt to deplete Israel’s supply of surface-to-air missiles before Tehran launches a larger strike in retaliation for last week’s air strike on its consulate in Damascus.

Videos online showed Israel’s Iron Dome defences kicking into action in the night skies above residents in northern Galilee.

An Israel Defence Forces (IDF) spokesman said it had intercepted “some” of the Katyusha missiles and that no injuries had been reported.

The Lebanese-based Iranian proxy group claimed it was targeting Israeli artillery positions.

Earlier today, air defences intercepted two Hezbollah bomb drones while several shells were fired from Lebanon without causing any casualties, according to the IDF. 

“IDF forces opened fire to eliminate the threat in several areas of southern Lebanon,” he added.

Hezbollah has exchanged near-daily cross-border fire with Israel since its ally Hamas, the Palestinian group, massacred hundreds of Israeli civilians in the Oct 7 attack.
