The decade's most triggering comedy
The Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah reportedly caused “heavy damage” to an Israeli military base on Monday after it launched a rocket and drone attack at the army base.
Hezbollah, which is based in southern Lebanon, has fired more than 1,000 rockets, mortars, missiles, and drones at Israel since Hamas’ unprecedented terrorist attack on October 7 when the Palestinian terrorist group murdered 1,200 Israelis, wounded 5,300, and kidnapped more than 240.
The Times of Israel reported that Hezbollah’s attacks were launched from “Lebanon at the northern communities of Arab al-Aramshe and Bar’am, as well as the Biranit army base.”
No casualties were reported from the strikes but there was heavy damage and a fire that was started from the rocket barrage, the report said.
Hezbollah launched a separate attack later in the day, firing approximately two dozen rockets and three suicide drones, presumably from Iran, at various locations along the Israeli border.
Later, some 25 rockets and three suicide drones were launched by Hezbollah from Lebanon at multiple locations along the border.

Hezbollah is considered the most powerful non-state actor in the world with tens of thousands of fighters and well over 100,000 rockets—many of which are more advanced than the thousands of rockets that Hamas has fired at Israel from Gaza. Hezbollah, which receives more than $700 million per year from Iran, more closely resembles a small scale military than a terrorist group like Hamas.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned last week that Hezbollah was “playing with fire” as it continued to ramp up its attacks against Israel.
“There are those who think they can expand their attacks against our troops and against civilians,” he said. “This is playing with fire. Fire will be met with much stronger fire. They must not try us, because we have displayed only a little part of our power. We will harm those who harm us.”
