Al-Qassam Brigades Launch Large Attack on Israeli Sites from Lebanon

Hamas’ military wing has initiated an assault aimed at Israeli military headquarters, resulting in confirmed injuries according to reports from Israeli media.

Al-Qassam Brigades, affiliated with Hamas, stationed in Lebanon, launched a significant barrage of Grad-type artillery rockets directed at two Israeli military installations in the al-Jalil Panhandle on Wednesday morning.

The resistance group stated that its fighters fired a total of 40 Grad-type rockets at the bases from South Lebanon. The targeted sites are identified as the headquarters of the 769th Territorial Birgade, named “Camp Gibor,” located in “Kiryat Shmona,” and the “Matar” Barracks near “Beit Hillel.”

These operations were carried out in response to Israeli actions against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and the assassination of leaders in the Southern Suburb of Beirut, as stated in a released statement by al-Qassam.

Images circulated on social media depict the aftermath of a rocket striking a building in “Kiryat Shmona,” with Israeli forces arriving at the scene to assess the damage caused by the attack.

Additionally, Israeli media reported that helicopters from the Israeli Defense Forces’ Special Tactics Rescue Unit 669 landed near Rambam Hospital in occupied Haifa, transporting casualties from the targeted sites.

Continued Response

This marks the second occasion where al-Qassam Brigades have carried out a rocket launch operation in retaliation for the assassination of the late Deputy Chief of Hamas’ Political Bureau and Resistance leader, Sheikh Saleh al-Arouri, along with six other leaders and fighters in the Southern Suburb of Beirut on January 2.

The initial response occurred on January 16, when al-Qassam fighters launched 20 rockets from South Lebanon at an Israeli military base in “Liman,” near the northern coast of occupied Palestine. During this retaliation, the group also mourned the loss of its fighter, Walid Ahmad Hasanayn, who was martyred on the same day of the retaliatory attack.

Hezbollah, the Islamic Resistance in Lebanon, also played a pivotal role in responding to the attack, which not only resulted in the martyrdom of al-Arouri but also disrupted the security of the Southern Suburb of Beirut. In their response, Hezbollah fighters launched a total of 62 guided missiles and rockets at the “Meron” Air Traffic Control Base on the morning of January 6. The assault inflicted severe damage on the surveillance and radar system equipment, deemed a high-level operation, given the site’s strategic location atop the highest point in the occupied Palestinian territories.
