Hezbollah Joins the Fray, Bombards Israel in Solidarity with Palestinian Fighters

Published on

The militant group Hezbollah in Lebanon fired dozens of rockets and shells at three Israeli sites in the Golan Heights on Sunday. The targets were in a contested area along Lebanon’s border with northern Israel.

In a statement, Hezbollah said that the attack with “a lot of rockets and shells” was in support of the “Palestinian resistance.” It said that the Israeli forces were hit straight on.

Israel’s forces shot back at the areas in Lebanon, but there was no word right away on how many people were hurt.

They said they fired at the places on the Lebanese side of the line where the fire was coming from.

Israel took Chebaa Farms from Syria during the Mideast War in 1967, but Lebanon sees it and the nearby Kfar Chouba hills as its own land.

Israel took over the Golan Heights area, which used to be part of Syria, during the Six-Day War.

In 1981, Israel officially took over the land.

Hezbollah is a terrorist group backed by Iran that rules southern Lebanon.

Israelis were killed in a surprise attack by Hamas, the Palestinian terrorist group that rules the Gaza Strip. It happened on Saturday, a Jewish holiday.

Also, an unknown number of Israelis have been captured as hostages to help the Palestinians get attackers out of Israeli jails.

Hezbollah was showing support for that act of Palestinian defiance.

Israel’s reaction to Hamas’s move has been a huge military one. The Israel Defense Forces are fighting Palestinians on the ground, and Israel’s air power has shown how strong it is.

As it became clear how bad the terrorist attack was, Benjamin Netanyahu, the prime minister of Israel, said on national TV, “We are at war. Not an operation, not a round, but at war.”

Not only did Netanyahu call for a large army buildup, he also said, “The enemy will pay an unprecedented price” for the attack.
