Lebanon launches three rockets at Israel and threatens a new front in the confrontation, apparently in a show of solidarity with Hamas
terrorists in the Gaza Strip.
FOX News As Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip continue to launch rocket after rocket into Israel, the Israeli Defense Forces Thursday said at least three had been fired from Lebanon, the country to the north.
The rockets splashed down into the sea, officials said, but the launches risk further escalating a deadly conflict as the Biden administration is urging both sides to stand down.
Hezbollah, an Iran-backed militant Lebanese group, has clashed with Israel before, including last July in a dispute over contested territory. And Palestinian militants also operate in the southern part of Lebanon.
In 2006, Hezbollah kicked off a month-long ground war with Israel after launching rocket attacks and an ambush on Israeli forces.
