BEIRUT: Tensions between Hezbollah and Israel have escalated further as Hezbollah claims to have launched a salvo of rockets at the Israeli air control base in retaliation for earlier strikes on east Lebanon.

The targeted base is reported to be the “Meron air control base.” Israel had previously conducted airstrikes near Baalbek, resulting in the death of two Hezbollah fighters.

The Israeli army, confirming the strikes, stated that they targeted Hezbollah air defenses after one of their drones was downed by the group. In response to the Israeli actions, Hezbollah reportedly fired 60 rockets at an Israeli base in the annexed Golan Heights on Monday.

Cross-border exchanges since the eruption of the conflict in October have resulted in significant casualties, with at least 284 people killed on the Lebanese side, including Hezbollah fighters and civilians. On the Israeli side, the toll stands at 10 soldiers and six civilians, according to the Israeli army.

The situation remains tense as both sides continue to exchange fire, marking a dangerous escalation in the ongoing conflict between Hezbollah and Israel.
