The Iran-backed armed group Hezbollah, which controls large swaths of southern Lebanon, said this morning it had fired dozens of rockets at the Israeli border town of Kiryat Shmona in response to an Israeli attack on the village of Hibbaria on Tuesday that killed at least seven people, Lebanese sources told Reuters. Israel did not comment on the strike. The rocket attack on Kiryat Shmona claimed the life of one Israeli civilian.

Other Israeli airstrikes near two towns deep inland in northeastern Lebanon on Tuesday killed three Hezbollah fighters, the group said. Israel confirmed these strikes.

After the outbreak of war between Israel and the Hamas terrorist movement in the Gaza Strip last October, cross-border fighting between Hezbollah and the Israeli army on Israel’s northern border also flared up. The clashes are the fiercest since 2006, when Israel and Hezbollah last fought a full-scale war.
