Hezbollah again targets Israeli base after assassinations in Lebanon, Syria
The Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah has once again targeted a strategic Israeli airbase in the north of the occupied territories in response to the regime’s genocidal war in the besieged Gaza Strip and its recent assassinations in Lebanon and Syria.
Hezbollah said in a statement that Israel’s Meron air traffic control base on Mount al-Jarmaq was struck by the resistance movement’s missiles on Tuesday “in support of steadfast Palestinian people in Gaza and their valiant and honorable resistance” against the Israeli occupation.
“The Meron air traffic control base was attacked for the second time with a large number of appropriate missiles, and they achieved direct hits, in response to the recent assassinations in Lebanon and Syria, and the repeated attacks on civilians and homes in our villages,” the statement added.
Israel’s Meron base, which was also targeted by Hezbollah earlier in the month, is the sole air management, monitoring and control center in the north of the occupied territories, to which there is no major alternative.
The Israeli regime has assassinated several high-ranking officials from the resistance front in Syria and Lebanon over the past month.
The Israeli regime launched its devastating war in the Gaza Strip on October 7 after the territory’s Hamas-led Palestinian resistance groups carried out a surprise retaliatory attack, dubbed Operation Al-Aqsa Storm, against the occupying entity.
The Israeli military has also been conducting attacks against the Lebanese territory since then, prompting retaliatory strikes from Lebanon’s resistance movement Hezbollah in support of the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip.
The movement has vowed to keep up its retaliatory operations as long as the occupying regime continues its onslaught on Gaza.
The Israeli campaign in Gaza has killed at least 25,400 people, most of them women and children. More than 62,000 individuals have also been wounded.
