Hezbollah armed wing shells Israeli military post on border with Lebanon

It is also reported that strikes were delivered on an Israeli patrol post near al-Merj and barracks in Ramim

BEIRUT, December 1. /TASS/. Hezbollah’s armed wing has resumed hostilities on the Lebanese-Israeli border after the ceasefire ended in the Gaza Strip.

According to its Telegram post, Hezbollah "resistance opened fire at Israel’s military post near Jel al-Alam." No further details were given.

Rockets were fired from southern Lebanon toward Israeli positions near Israel’s settlements of Menara, Shlomi, Margaliot, and Kiryat-Shmona, where air raid warning sirens sounded.

Strikes were delivered on an Israeli patrol post near al-Merj and barracks in Ramim. Shiite militants claim that several Israeli soldiers were killed or wounded.

On November 22, Hamas announced an agreement with Israel, which was brokered by Egypt and Qatar, on a four-day humanitarian truce in the Gaza Strip. The ceasefire took effect at 7:00 a.m. local time (5:00 a.m. GMT) on November 24. The deal stipulated the release of Israeli women and children being held hostage in Gaza in exchange for the release of Palestinian women and children from Israeli prisons.

Israel said it was ready to extend the truce for an additional day in exchange for the release of ten more hostages, vowing to free 30 Palestinian prisoners every time. However, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said on the morning of December 1 that Hamas had violated the truce in Gaza and opened fire on Israeli territory, thus prompting the IDF to resume combat operations in the Gaza Strip.
