3 killed, 9 injured in confrontations on Lebanon-Israel border

Beirut, Feb 26 (UNI) Three Hezbollah fighters were killed and nine people, including three Hezbollah fighters and six civilians, were injured on Sunday in Israeli strikes on Lebanon's southern border, Lebanese military sources said.
The sources, who spoke anonymously, said the casualties resulted from 13 Israeli airstrikes on six towns and villages in the border region and artillery shelling of 18 villages and towns in southern Lebanon, which destroyed eight houses and damaged 35 others.
According to the sources, all the injured people have been transferred to a hospital in southern Lebanon.
Meanwhile, Hezbollah announced that its fighters had attacked several Israeli sites.
The Lebanon-Israel border has been witnessing increased tension since October 8, 2023, after Lebanese armed group Hezbollah fired dozens of rockets toward Israel in support of the Hamas attack on Israel the previous day, prompting Israel to respond by firing heavy artillery toward southeastern Lebanon.
The confrontations between Hezbollah and Israel have killed 314 people on the Lebanese side, including 212 Hezbollah members and 59 civilians, according to Lebanese security sources.
