Hezbollah fires dozens of rockets at Israeli headquarters

Hezbollah claimed to have fired “dozens” of Katyusha rockets at Israeli headquarters on April 22nd, according to Arab News and agencies.

In a statement, Hezbollah declared to have bombarded “the headquarters of the 3rd Infantry Brigade of the 91st Division at Ein Zeitim Base with dozens of Katyusha rockets” in response to recent Israeli attacks in southern Lebanon.

“Approximately 35 launches were identified crossing from Lebanon into the area of Ein Zeitim in northern Israel”, stated the Israeli army, reassuring that no victims were involved in the strike.

Tensions between the two parties escalated following the Israeli bombing of the Iranian consulate in Damascus on April 1st, which killed at least 13 military personnel, including seven Revolutionary Guard fighters, one Iranian advisor, five Iran-backed militiamen and one Hezbollah fighter.

As a result, the Iran-backed militant group declared war against Israel.

Since the start of the year, Israel has carried out several assassinations and attacks targeting Hezbollah members, killing over 240 Lebanese militant fighters.

Currently, the number of fatalities caused by the conflict between the two, has exceeded that of the Israel-Hezbollah war in 2006.
