Hezbollah launched an offensive against Israel with dozens of rockets

Hezbollah announced on Tuesday night that it had fired “dozens” of rockets at Israel after Israeli shelling on a house in the southern Lebanese city of Hanin killed two civilians.

Hezbollah fighters fired “dozens of Katyusha rockets” toward northern Israel, “in response to Israeli enemy attacks on civilian homes, such as the massacre of Han,” a related statement said.

Lebanon's official news agency (NNA) reported that an Israeli attack killed a 50-year-old woman and a 12-year-old girl and wounded six others.

“Enemy fighter jets fired two missiles against the two-story house, which was completely destroyed,” NNA reported. The victims are members of a family that has not left their home despite the intensification of Israeli attacks in recent months.

Since the start of the war between Israel and Hamas on October 7, there have been almost daily hostilities between the Israeli army and Lebanon's Hezbollah, which backs the Palestinian Islamist movement. Israeli attacks during this period have killed 380 people, 277 of them Hezbollah fighters and 76 civilians, according to a tally confirmed by the Lebanese security services. In Israel, 19 people have been killed, eleven soldiers and eight civilians, according to an AFP tally.
