On Wednesday, March 27, Israel launched an airstrike on Nabatieh in southern Lebanon. At least seven people were killed as a result, according to Reuters.

According to sources, the strike targeted a center for emergency aid and assistance to the Islamic Group in the village of Hebbariyeh in southern Lebanon.

Also on Tuesday, March 26, Israeli airstrikes near two towns in northeastern Lebanon killed three Hezbollah militants. Israel later confirmed the information released.

Reuters reported that the Lebanese Hezbollah organization and the Israeli army HAMAS had been engaged in a shootout since October as part of the worst cross-border violence.

Hezbollah last fought Israel in 2006, which ended with the adoption of a UN Security Council resolution, victory for both sides and an agreement not to strike again.

Israel-Hamas war

On October 7, 2023, militants from the radical Palestinian Islamic movement Hamas attacked Israel from the Gaza Strip. Following this, the Israel Defense Forces launched a ground military operation in the Gaza Strip.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu identified the main goal of the operation as the complete destruction of Hamas' operational and governmental capabilities and the release of hostages. Additionally, he stated readiness for the IDF to begin a ground invasion in Rafah.

In February, the Israeli military conducted a series of strikes on militant observation posts in southern Lebanon. They noted that the action was in response to two rocket launches from Lebanon that landed in open areas.

Furthermore, in northern Gaza, over 1.1 million people are experiencing conditions akin to famine. According to the UN, such a development is inevitable and could begin as early as May and spread across the enclave by July.
