Israel’s brutal revenge on Iran begins with fighter jets

By nytimespost

In a series of retaliatory strikes, Israel has intensified its attacks on southern Lebanon, targeting several areas overnight and in the early morning hours.

The escalating violence has raised concerns of a broader conflict in the region.

The Israeli strikes have hit locations including Nabi Sheet in the Bekaa area, Iqlim al-Tuffah, and Khiam.

Tensions between Israeli forces and Iran-backed Hezbollah have been mounting, with near-daily exchanges of fire along the border regions since the onset of the conflict in Gaza.

The situation took a dangerous turn on Saturday when the Israeli army reported intercepting 40 launches from Lebanon, marking Hezbollah’s largest attack since October 7.

The increased intensity and frequency of the clashes have sparked fears of a widening conflict that could have far-reaching consequences.

Hezbollah says it fired dozens of rockets toward Israeli military posts in Syria’s Israeli-occupied Golan Heights early Sunday after an Israeli airstrike killed one person in Lebanon.

The group said the attack was in retaliation for Israeli airstrikes overnight on towns and villages in southern Lebanon that killed and wounded “civilians”.

Lebanon’s state-run National News Agency said Israeli airstrikes hit areas including the border villages of Kfar Kila and Odeisseh, as well as the town of Khiam.

It said the airstrike on Khiam, a few miles from the border, killed one person and wounded others.

The exchange early Sunday came as Iran launched hundreds of drones, ballistic missiles and cruise missiles toward Israel in an unprecedented revenge mission for the April 1 airstrike on the Iranian consulate in the Syrian capital, Damascus.
