Israeli Army Escalates Artillery Strikes On Lebanon In Response To Recent Rocket Attack (Videos, Photos)

On August 4 noon, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) escalated their artillery strikes on Lebanon in response to the recent rocket attack on northern Israel.

Earlier, three rockets were launched from South Lebanon at Israel. One of the rockets fell short inside Lebanon, while the remaining two landed in an empty area near the settlement of Kiryat Shmona. No casualties were reported.

According to Lebanese sources, the IDF’s artillery strikes targeted the surroundings of Armaz hill as well the towns of Khraibeh, Kfarchouba, Chebaa and Habbariyeh. The shelling caused several fires. However, there were casualties.

The IDF held the Lebanese government responsible for the attack, despite reports saying that the rockets were launched by Palestinian gunmen.

“Not only is rocket fire from Lebanon at Israeli civilians an act of terrorism, it also is indicative of the Lebanese government’s lack of governance of terrorist organizations operating in Lebanon,” the IDF said on Twitter. “The Lebanese government is responsible for all attacks from Lebanon.”

Hezbollah is yet to comment on the recent development in South Lebanon, its heartland. While the Lebanese group was not apparently behind the last rocket attack, it may respond to the IDF’s artillery strikes.

By escalating its artillery strikes on South Lebanon, the IDF is hoping to restore deterrence. At least five rocket attacks were launched from Lebanon at Israel in the last few months.

We all know the zionists have never attacked their own people to escalate hostilities. It is common practice for the diaper brigades.

Zionist criminals want to annex Litani headwaters during this Lebanese chaos but only Hezbollah is in their way.


zionists desperate to start a war. Send them a few balistic missils on there artillery and they start criyng.

The Zionist spineless cowards want to set off a civil war in Lebanon in desperation, but will fail due to demographics now and Hezbollah’s ability to turn most Zionist hovels into parking lots.

They want to destroy vegetation over in south, because it is drought and temperatures are not normal. So they use white phosphorus shells to ignite fires. Just white phosphorus is very very ad thing, very flammable and very toxic. If this is used by Hezbollah america would go full psycho on huma rights, terrorism, womd, so called jihadis etc. I just ask why they didn’t bomb them with Napalm, which is even more flammable and dangerous if combined with wp? Why didn’t they scramble their brave airforce, or they know something that Hezbillah posess, and it is danger to their planes.

Hey idf punks, how about some critical beatdown, you’re up to that? Your iron dome can’t even destroy a shell from a mortar that is like 150 years old. You are terrorist, in every sence.

US & EU are Zion slaves

So it was the fuking “Jewish” terrorists’ Zion who starts the fires. They are also cancer to Earth.

Icarus Tanović

Yes, Zionists.

Albione is the cancer , not the US . US are just a colony of the anglo -zionist empire , used like cannon fodder . It was Trump who tried to revive the American Revolution against the evil empire . Death to blm – antifascist – pedo lgbt .

Israeli Diaper Force is just pulling PR stunts for domestic and brainwashed western idiots benefit. They know full well that a war with Hezbollah will be their end.
