By News Desk - August 06 2021

Hezbollah responded on Friday to the recent Israeli attacks in southern Lebanon, targeting sites in the occupied Sheba’a Farms region.

Hezbollah released a statement on Friday morning that claimed their forces fired the rockets at 11:15 am.

Israel later confirmed the attack, claiming that 19 rockets were fired, with ten of them intercepted by their forces.

The Israeli Ministry of Defense also claimed that a few rockets landed inside Lebanon and the remaining landed in an open area in the Jabal Rus area.

In a short briefing, UNIFIL said, “the situation in the border areas between Lebanon and Israel is very dangerous,” and called for restraint.

The new Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett is reportedly holding consultations with Defense Minister Benny Gantz, the Chief of the Army’s General Staff, Lieutenant-General Aviv Kochavi, and the senior security establishment, within the next hour.

Bennett plans to discuss the developments that took place on the northern border.

In the meantime, Israeli warplanes are flying at low altitudes over the southern region of Lebanon, with sightings over Hasbaya and Nabatieh.
