Resistance groups in Gaza and Lebanon kept up retaliatory operations against Israeli forces, hitting them with drones and missiles along with other weapons, on the 35th day of the Israeli war on Gaza.
The Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, said Friday its forces continued to confront the invading Israeli troops in several areas inside Gaza.
The movement said it staged drone and artillery strikes on the gatherings of Israeli soldiers and hit several Israeli tanks and military vehicles using Al-Yasin anti-tank weapons.
The Brigades also fired a salvo of missiles towards Tel Aviv in response to the Israeli massacres against civilians. It also said it targeted strikes in the settlements of Meftahim and Nirim, among other regions. They said they also bombarded the Raim military base near Gaza.
The Qassam Brigades has destroyed over 140 Israeli tanks and military vehicles in Gaza since the start of the ground incursion in late October.
Israeli media say 38 regime troops have been killed in the ground operation so far.
The resistance, however, says the death toll is much higher.
Hezbollah stages drone attacks
Lebanons resistance movement Hezbollah also said it attacked several Israeli military positions in support of the "brave and honorable" resistance of Palestinians in Gaza.
The movement said a combat drone hit an Israeli base in Yiftah Kadish, a Lebanese village occupied by Israel, while two other drones hit a contingent of Israeli soldiers in the east of the Hatzodet Yeshua settlement.
Hezbollah said it targeted gatherings of Israeli soldiers near the Al-Asi site and several other locations with guided missiles
Four Israeli troopers severely injured
A spokesperson with the Israeli military said on Friday that four Israeli soldiers were severely wounded following drone and anti-tank attacks near the Lebanese border.
Three soldiers were seriously wounded by an anti-tank missile near the northern community of Menara, the Israeli media said, adding that another trooper was wounded and a second was moderately hurt in a drone attack against soldiers near the Lebanese border.
Since the beginning of the Israeli bombardment of the Gaza Strip on the seventh of October, Hezbollah has targeted some Israeli positions near the Lebanese border in retaliatory strikes.
Last Friday, Hezbollahs Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said all options were on the table against Israel, urging the Zionist regime to stop its aggression against Palestinians in Gaza immediately.
Hezbollah was ready for all possibilities, Nasrallah said, adding that whoever wanted to prevent a regional war, had to quickly stop the Israeli aggression against the besieged coastal territory.
