Israeli Army Radio confirmed that an anti-tank missile from southern Lebanon struck an orchard in Galilee, in northern Israel.

One person was killed and eight others were injured in an anti-tank missile attack that targeted northern Israel from Lebanon on Monday, according to Israel’s national ambulance service, Magen David Adom.

Magen David Adom added in a statement that some of the wounded are in serious condition. 

Israeli Army Radio confirmed that the anti-tank missile struck an orchard in Galilee, in northern Israel.

The Israeli public broadcaster KAN said the dead person and the injured were all foreign laborers, apparently from Thailand.

Since the start of the Israeli war on Gaza, on October 7, the Lebanese movement Hezbollah has engaged directly, but relatively in a limited way in the war against the Israeli occupation.

According to Hezbollah sources, the movement has carried out 169 military operations in the first 120 days of war, killing over 2,000 Israeli soldiers.

Israel has occupied parts of Lebanon for decades and has only left the country in 2000, following stiff Lebanese resistance under Hezbollah’s leadership.

It attempted to re-occupy Lebanon in 2006 but failed in what Lebanon considers a major victory against Israel. 

Israel, however, continues to occupy parts of Lebanon, namely the Sheeba Farms region.

Hezbollah has vowed to recover every inch of Lebanon that has been occupied by Israel contrary to international law.
