On January 18, six Hezbollah members along with Iranian Brigadier General Mohammad Ali Allahdadi were killed during an Israeli airstrike on Syria’s Golan Heights.
Among the dead was Jihad Mughniyah, son of the late Hezbollah commander Imad Mughniyah.
The Lebanese resistance movement carried out a retaliatory attack on Wednesday, killing two Israeli soldiers and injuring several others in the Shebaa Farms located at the intersection of the Lebanese-Syrian border and the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
Hezbollah’s surprise attack also destroyed at least nine Israeli military vehicles.
Palestinian resistance movement Hamas praised Hezbollah for hitting back, describing the move as “a natural and legitimate response to Israel's crimes.”
