In the face of escalating tension on the Lebanese-Israeli border, 11 Israelis, including 8 soldiers, were injured in the firing of an anti-armor missile at a gathering of Israeli occupation soldiers in the Beit Hillel area of the Upper Galilee.

The same Israeli media sources published photos of an Israeli vehicle being hit by a rocket in Beit Hillel in what is known as the "Upper Finger of Galilee."

In turn, the newspaper "Yedioth Ahronoth" confirmed that "11 soldiers were lightly to moderately wounded, not 4 as previously reported," and pointed out that "the soldiers got out of the vehicle seconds before it was hit by a rocket fired by Hezbollah elements and were wounded by shrapnel, and were transferred to Ziv Hospital, in the city of Safad (north)."

Earlier in the announcement, Lebanese Hezbollah said it had attacked four Israeli military sites off the border, including a gathering of Israeli soldiers east of the Hanita site, noting that its fighters targeted with rockets an Israeli vehicle at the Beit Hillel base, killing and wounding its crew.

On the other hand, Israeli artillery shelled with incendiary shells the vicinity of several towns in the eastern and western sectors of southern Lebanon.

Al-Jazeera correspondent reported that about 12 rockets were fired at Israeli military sites in the occupied Shebaa Farms and Kfar Shuba hills and in the Galilee finger area. Radar sites, Ruweisat al-Alam, Ramtha and the Israeli Zebdin barracks were targeted, he said.

Since October 8, the Israeli army has exchanged sporadic shelling with Lebanese Hezbollah and Palestinian factions in Lebanon, leaving people dead and wounded on both sides of the border.

This bombardment began in the wake of the outbreak of a devastating war waged by the Israeli army on the Gaza Strip, which left 15,207 Palestinian martyrs and 40,652 wounded, in addition to massive destruction of infrastructure and an unprecedented humanitarian catastrophe, according to official Palestinian and UN sources.
