Hezbollah claims to strike Israeli army with two suicide drones: report

Hezbollah claimed on Thursday to have struck an Israeli army post with two suicide drones in what would be the first attack of its kind during the Israel-Hamas war, a report says. 

The Lebanese militant group said in a statement that the drones laden with explosives “precisely” hit their targets in the Chebaa Farms area of the disputed Golan Heights territory, according to The Associated Press. 

The claims come ahead of Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah’s first public remarks Friday since the Oct. 7 Hamas attack on Israel.

Later, the Palestinian militant group Hamas said it fired 12 rockets from Lebanon toward the northern Israeli town of Kiryat Shmona. 

The Qassam Brigades said in a statement that Thursday’s rocket attack came in retaliation for the “occupation’s massacres against our people in Gaza,” the AP reported. 

 

And at least 10 Americans are feared to be among the 242 people held captive by Hamas. 

Fox News’ Chris Pandolfo and The Associated Press contributed to this report.
