BEIRUT, June 12: Lebanese militant group Hezbollah fired barrages of rockets at northern Israel on Wednesday and vowed to increase its attacks after an Israeli strike killed a senior commander in south Lebanon the previous day.

Hezbollah has traded near-daily cross-border fire with the Israeli army since its Palestinian ally Hamas attacked southern Israel on October 7, triggering war in Gaza.

The exchanges have intensified in recent weeks, as Hezbollah has stepped up its use of drones to attack Israeli military positions, while Israel has hit back with targeted strikes against the militants.

"We will increase the intensity, strength, quantity and quality of our attacks," said senior Hezbollah official Hashem Safieddine, speaking at the funeral of commander Taleb Sami Abdallah, who was killed in the Israeli strike on Tuesday.

In statements, Hezbollah said it launched "dozens of Katyusha rockets" at three bases and a barracks in northern Israel.    —AFP
