The Lebanese Hezbollah Group Released A Video Showing Its Attack On an Israeli Military Convoy

The Lebanese Hezbollah group released a video showing its attack on an Israeli military convoy. The attack reportedly killed one Israeli citizen. Hezbollah was seen firing anti-tank missiles and artillery shells at Israeli military convoys in disputed areas along the border.

The group said its fighters ambushed the convoy shortly before midnight on Thursday 25 April 2024 and managed to destroy two vehicles. Meanwhile, the Israeli military said the ambush injured one civilian who was carrying out infrastructure work. | One civilian later died of injuries. The incident occurred in a known disputed area of ‚Äč‚ÄčLebanon. This occurs in the Farkouba hills and in Israel’s Hardov region. The area was captured by Israel from Syria. During the Middle East war in 1967 the region was also part of the Syrian Golan Plateau, which was annexed by Israel in 1981. On the other hand the Lebanese government calls the area its own.

Hezbollah and Israel have exchanged fire almost every day along the border since the start of the war in Gaza. Hezbollah said that its action was a form of solidarity with Hamas and the genocide taking place in the Gaza region.

Even low-intensity fighting has repeatedly threatened to escalate if Israel targets senior Hezbollah leaders. In recent months on the Israeli side the fighting has killed 10 civilians and 12 soldiers. Meanwhile, on the Lebanese side, more than 350 people were killed, including 50 civilians and 271 Hezbollah members.
