Hezbollah Launches Rocket Strike On Israel

The Lebanese militia group Hezbollah said it launched more than 60 rockets at a Israeli military base Saturday.

The strike was an “initial response” to the assassination of one of its leaders, Saleh al-Arouri, earlier in the week, Hezbollah said in a statement. Hezbollah believes Israel is responsible for the strike that killed Arouri, but Israel has not claimed responsibility.

On Friday, the leader of the Lebanese militia said his group must retaliate over the strike. “We cannot keep silent about a violation of this seriousness,” said Hassan Nasrallah, according to The Associated Press. He said the cost of staying quiet is “far greater” than the risks of retaliating.

Hamas and security officials in the region attributed the strike that killed Saleh al-Arouri to an Israeli drone, although Israel has not directly acknowledged responsibility.
