Hezbollah launches drone attack on Hurfeish, Israel

Thursday, June 6, 2024

On Wednesday, multiple drones from the Iranian-backed Islamist group Hezbollah, struck the town of Hurfeish in northern Israel, injuring eleven people. Hezbollah is based in Lebanon and listed as a terrorist organization by the United States.

The Times of Israel also said that one person was in critical condition.

The emergency sirens reportedly were not heard during the strikes. The Israel Defense Force said it was looking into why this had happened.

Over the course of the post-October 7 escalation of the Israel-Palestine conflict, Hezbollah has launched a variety of strikes against Israel, using 4,000 rockets and killing multiple soldiers and ten civilians. These attacks and the Israeli response have forced tens of thousands of civilians to be evacuated.
