Three people were injured by Israeli strikes on the night of Saturday to Sunday in the area of ​​Baalbek, a stronghold of Hezbollah in eastern Lebanon, a correspondent of the French News Agency (AFP) reports.

This is the third time in the last five months – that is, since the clashes on the Lebanese-Israeli border escalated against the backdrop of the war in the Gaza Strip – that the Israeli Armed Forces (IDF) have targeted the area, about 100 kilometers from the borders of the two countries.

Israeli warplanes fired five missiles at the Al Osheira suburb, the AFP correspondent said. He added that the target of the raid was a Hezbollah center that had been temporarily abandoned, while residents of neighboring buildings were injured.

Governor Bashir Khodr confirmed the injury of three people in a post on the X (formerly Twitter) platform.

Hostilities between the Israeli army and Hezbollah have been almost daily since October 8, the day after the Israel-Hamas war broke out. They are focused along the border, with the exception of February 26 and March 12 when Israel launched airstrikes in Baalbek in eastern Lebanon, near the Syrian border.

The clashes have killed at least 323 people in Lebanon, including dozens of Hezbollah members and 56 civilians, according to an AFP tally based on Lebanese security sources. In Israel, the armed forces have announced the deaths of ten soldiers and seven civilians.
