The Israeli military said in a statement that the group launched over 100 rockets from southern Lebanon towards the Galilee region on Wednesday, stressing it marks one of the largest barrages carried out by Hezbollah.

The statement added that the barrage saw the city of Tiberias targeted for the first time.

It went on to assert that several rockets were intercepted by the regime's so-called Iron Dome systems, while others impacted at several locations.

As a result of the rocket impacts, several fires were sparked, the Israeli army said.

Meanwhile, Israeli media outlets reported that some rockets had slammed into a factory at Sassa kibbutz in the Upper Galilee area, causing damage.

There were also reports of power outage in Safed city in the northern sector of the 1948 occupied territories as a result of the Hezbollah rocket strike.

The massive attack was in response to the death of a high-ranking Hezbollah field commander in Israeli airstrikes against a house in southern Lebanon.

Hezbollah said in a statement that Sami Abdallah, better known by the nom the guerre Abu Taleb, born in 1969, was killed in the air raids that targeted a residential building in the town of Jwaya, located 95 kilometers (59 miles) south of the capital Beirut, early on Wednesday.

The occupying Israeli regime has repeatedly launched attacks on southern Lebanon since October 7, after commencing a genocidal war in Gaza that has killed at least 37,164 Palestinians, predominantly women and children so far.

At least 455 people have been killed on the Lebanese border, including more than 80 civilians, according to a tally by AFP.
