The Lebanese Hezbollah announced that it bombed - today, Monday - the headquarters of the Golan Division of the Israeli army with dozens of missiles in response to the Israeli aircraft targeting its sites in Baalbek, eastern Lebanon.

Hezbollah said - in a statement - that it targeted the headquarters of the Golan Division in Nafah with 60 Katyusha rockets in response to the Israeli bombing that targeted Baalbek in the Bekaa and resulted in the killing of two members of the party.

According to Israeli Channel 12, about 50 missiles were fired at the Golan Heights, but no casualties were reported.

A member of the Hezbollah bloc in the Lebanese Parliament, Hassan Fadlallah, had vowed to respond to the Israeli bombing of Baalbek and other places in Lebanon.

Fadlallah added during the funeral of one of the fighters that Israel expanded the scope of its attacks by bombing Baalbek and other areas in Lebanon because "the enemy... believes that it is compensating for what was inflicted upon it this morning at the hands of the heroes of the resistance in bringing down the pride of its marches with their missiles."

This morning, Hezbollah announced that the “Air Defense Unit of the Islamic Resistance” shot down an Israeli “Hormuz 450” drone with a surface-to-air missile over the Iqlim al-Tuffah area in southern Lebanon, and said that it would continue to confront Israeli aircraft and prevent them from achieving their aggressive goals.

In addition to bombing the Golan Division headquarters, Hezbollah announced that it targeted the Baranit barracks and two radar sites in the occupied Lebanese Shebaa Farms and Ruwaisat al-Alam in the occupied Kfar Shuba hills, achieving direct hits.

For his part, Al Jazeera's correspondent reported the launching of missiles from southern Lebanon towards the Upper Galilee.

Baalbek for the first time

Meanwhile, Al Jazeera's correspondent reported that Israeli aircraft launched 3 raids on the town of Aita al-Shaab in southern Lebanon.

Israeli aircraft also targeted the Al-Ahmadiyya area in the vicinity of the village of Al-Dalafa in the Hasbaya district.

The Israeli army announced that it targeted Baalbek in the Bekaa in response to the downing of the march, and said that it would continue its operations to defend Israel, including in Lebanese airspace.

The occupation army added - in a statement - that its aircraft targeted compounds used by Hezbollah's air defense unit in the Bekaa.

The raid occurred 18 kilometers from Baalbek and resulted in the destruction of at least one building.

This is the first time that Israeli aircraft have targeted the Baalbek area since the outbreak of confrontations between Hezbollah and the Israeli army last October.

Baalbek is located near the border with Syria, about 100 kilometers from the southern Lebanese border, and is considered a stronghold for Hezbollah.

Israel threatens to launch a large-scale military operation to remove the party’s fighters from the border if a diplomatic settlement is not reached in this regard.

Hezbollah began clashing with the Israeli occupation forces across the border shortly after the Palestinian resistance launched the Battle of Al-Aqsa Flood on October 7, and the confrontations resulted in deaths on both sides.
