BEIRUT, June 13 (Xinhua) -- Hezbollah launched a barrage of missiles and drones at Israeli barracks and military centers on Thursday, two days after an Israeli strike in southeastern Lebanon killed a senior commander and three other members of the Lebanese armed groupsunshinebingo.

Hezbollah said in a statement that it used missiles, drones, Katyusha rockets and Al-Falaq missiles to target six Israeli barracks and military sites "in response to the assassination carried out by the Zionist enemy in the town of Jouaiya." Tuesday's attack hit a house in Jouaiya, killing Abu Talib and three of his companions.

Meanwhile, Hezbollah said its fighters used several squadrons to attack David Base, the headquarters of Israel's northern command, Mishar Base, the main intelligence headquarters for the northern region of Israel, and the Katsavia Barracks, the headquarters of the seventh Armored Brigade of the 210th Golan Division.

A Lebanese military source told Xinhua that the Lebanese Army's observation posts on Thursday monitored the launch of about 150 surface-to-surface missiles and about 20 drones from Lebanon towards northern Israel.

"Israeli drones and warplanes on Thursday carried out 16 raids on eight towns, villages and open areas in the border area and in the Jezzine region of southern Lebanon, resulting in several fires and material damage to dozens of homes," the source added.

Meanwhile, Al Jazeera TV channel quoted an official source from Hezbollah as saying that Thursday's attack is the group's largest and most comprehensive assault on northern Israel since the beginning of the Israel-Lebanon border confrontations on Oct. 8, 2023.

Tensions along the Lebanon-Israel border escalated on Oct. 8, 2023, following a barrage of rockets launched by Hezbollah towards Israel in solidarity with Hamas's attack on Israel the day before. Israel then retaliated by firing heavy artillery towards southeastern Lebanon.
