Hezbollah fires more projectiles at Israel as tensions spike

Lebanon’s Hezbollah fired a fresh barrage of projectiles into northern Israel on Wednesday, the Israeli army said, a day after Israel warned of a “total war” with the Iran-backed militant group.

“Approximately 15 projectiles were identified from Lebanon toward the area of Kiryat Shmona, several of which were intercepted by [army] aerial defence array,” the military said in a statement.

“[Army] artillery struck the sources of fire,” it said, adding the incoming fire did not cause any casualties.

According to The New Arab, the military said its warplanes also struck a Hezbollah military structure in the area of Tyre and infrastructure in Khiam in Lebanon.
