Associated Press

BEIRUT (AP) — The Lebanese Hezbollah group says it’s launched over 200 rockets at several military bases in Israel in retaliation for a strike that killed one of its senior commanders. The attack by the Iran-backed militant group on Thursday was one of the largest in the monthslong conflict along the Lebanon-Israel border, with tensions boiling in recent weeks. The Israeli military didn’t immediately comment on the attack. It acknowledged on Wednesday that it killed Mohammad Naameh Nasser, who headed one of Hezbollah’s three regional divisions in southern Lebanon, a day earlier. Hours later, Hezbollah launched scores of Katyusha rockets and Falaq rockets with heavy warheads into northern Israel and the Israeli-annexed Golan Heights, followed by more rockets on Thursday.
