An Israeli army raid on Lebanese Hezbollah

The Israeli army and Hezbollah on Thursday witnessed a change in shelling across the border between Lebanon and Israel, in a scene that has become an almost daily occurrence since the outbreak of the war in Gaza two months ago.
Hezbollah said in a statement that its fighters targeted, this morning, the Israeli sites of Al-Marj and Haraj Ramim near the border with Lebanon “with appropriate weapons” and achieved “direct hits” in them.
On the other hand, the Israeli army stated that it monitored the firing of a number of missiles from Lebanon towards Israel, and responded to the sources of fire.
The army added in a statement that its fighters struck a series of targets belonging to Hezbollah in Lebanese territory, including infrastructure, launching sites, and military sites. Earlier today, the Israeli army said that sirens sounded in the town of Margaliot, located in northern Israel, near the border with Lebanon.
The Lebanese National News Agency reported that the outskirts of the towns of Houla and Markab in the Marjayoun district were subjected to Israeli artillery shelling, while Lebanon TV indicated artillery shelling on the outskirts of the towns of Tair Harfa, Al-Dhahira, and Alma Al-Shaab in the south of the country.
It is noteworthy that the mutual bombing has become almost daily across the border between the Israeli army on the one hand and Hezbollah and armed Palestinian factions in Lebanon on the other hand following the outbreak of war in the Gaza Strip on the seventh of last October.
However, these confrontations did not go beyond the limits of acceptable border clashes, according to what a number of experts saw.
But the mutual bombardment prompted Israel to evacuate tens of thousands of residents of northern villages and towns near the border as a precaution.
The Israeli authorities have repeatedly threatened to turn Beirut into a second Gaza if Hezbollah militias persist in bombing it, holding the Lebanese government responsible for controlling the borders.
While the caretaker government and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs both confirmed that Lebanon does not want war, does not seek it, and does not tolerate it, considering that the decision for war and escalation on the southern border is in Israel’s hands.
While international fears have increased that these skirmishes will go beyond the usual rules of engagement, and the Israeli-Palestinian war will expand into a more comprehensive regional conflict, which may open the door to the intervention of other armed groups supported by Iran, whether in Iraq, Syria, or even Yemen.
