Shelling is intensifying along the Israel-Lebanon border as the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah trade missile strikes, according to a report.

The Iranian-backed Hezbollah has claimed responsibility for striking eight targets in Israel, including soldiers and a barracks, in support of the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

In response, Israel's military has launched counterattacks, targeting a site in Lebanon that has been attempting to launch anti-tank missiles towards its territory.

The counterattacks have affected numerous villages along Lebanon's southern border, making it one of the most violent days since the start of the Israel-Hamas war.

Although there have been no immediate reports of injuries from the shelling, the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas has resulted in the deaths of over 70 Hezbollah fighters and 10 civilians in Lebanon.

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah declared his support for Hamas' terrorist attack in Israel, stating that the current situation at the border is significant and not the end of their involvement.

As the fighting between Israel and Hamas continues for almost six weeks now, President Biden believes Israel's military operation will cease once Hamas is unable to harm Israelis anymore.

Biden has called on Israel's military to exercise caution and to be mindful of civilian infrastructure while targeting Hamas military assets.

Despite this, the threat of further attacks by Hamas remains, presenting a challenging dilemma for Israeli authorities.

This ongoing conflict has gripped the world with its intensity and consequences. It is a constantly evolving situation with potentially far-reaching implications.
