Resistance Continues to Target U.S., Israeli Positions

BEIRUT (Dispatches) – Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement has carried out a missile strike against a gathering of the Zionist regime troops in southern Lebanon.
The movement announced the development in a statement, saying it had targeted the forces near the town of al-Dhahira in the country’s Tyre District on Monday.
The missile strike set off missile sirens in Galilee in the northern part of the occupied territories, Qatar’s Al Jazeera television network reported.
Hezbollah said it had conducted the Monday operation “in support of our steadfast Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip and in support of their brave and honorable resistance.”
The occupying regime has been waging sporadic attacks against Lebanon since October 7, 2023, when it launched a genocidal war against Gaza. The attacks have prompted a firefight with Hezbollah.
At least, 34,097 Palestinians have been killed, most of them women and children, and 76,980 others sustained injuries in the regime’s genocide. More than 1.7 million people have been internally displaced as well.
The United States has supplied Israel with weapons and intelligence support and blocked UN Security Council resolutions that called for a humanitarian ceasefire in the Palestinian territory.
Meanwhile, two major military bases used by the occupying American forces in Syria have come under missile and drone attacks amid simmering anti-U.S. sentiments in the region over Washington’s support for the Tel Aviv regime’s genocide in Gaza.
According to Lebanon’s al-Mayadeen news channel, the attacks came early Monday, targeting the U.S. military base in the al-Omar oil field as well as Kharab al-Jir base, both in eastern Syria.
The report added that the U.S. base at the al-Omar oil field was targeted with four missiles, while the Kharab al-Jir base was targeted with three missiles and a drone.
Al-Mayadeen said the two bases, which are the most important American bases in eastern Syria, were attacked less than an hour apart.
There has been no immediate claim of responsibly for the attacks. There were also no reports on any possible casualties or the extent of damage at the two bases.
Quoting two Iraqi security sources, Reuters said the missiles were launched from the town of Zummar in northern province of Nineveh.
The Islamic Resistance in Iraq, which is an umbrella group of anti-terror fighters, has claimed responsibility for most previous retaliatory strikes on U.S. military bases in Iraq and neighboring Syria.
The group has asserted that its strikes on American and Israeli military sites will continue as long as the Tel Aviv regime’s genocidal war on the besieged Gaza Strip continues.
