 – Israel’s military said on Thursday that Iran-backed Hezbollah in Lebanon has fired hundreds of rockets and missiles at Israel, and about one in five of the rockets fell short inside Lebanon.

“Overall, approximately one in five rockets fired by Hezbollah since October 7th toward Israel have fallen inside Lebanese territory. Hezbollah’s rocket attacks harm Israeli and Lebanese civilians alike,” the military said.

Following the eruption of the Hamas-Israel war on Oct. 7, Hezbollah mounted near-daily rocket attacks at Israel while Israel launched air and artillery strikes in south Lebanon.
