(DEFENCE SECURITY ASIA) — Hezbollah launched a barrage of more than 60 rockets at the Meron military base situated atop Mount Jarmak in northern occupied Palestine, one of the most crucial military installations belonging to Israel Defense Force (IDF),

The IDF’s Meron base is regarded by observers as one of the most critical Israeli military installations with Israel’s high-ranking military leaders are known to frequent the base for operational command.

The rocket attack on this significant Israeli military facility commenced at 8 am local time and lasted for several hours.

Observers characterize Hezbollah’s rocket assault on the Meron military base as a “grave” threat to the overall capabilities of the Israeli military, marking a further escalation in the armed conflict between the two parties.

According to a statement by Hezbollah, the Meron military base in northern occupied Palestine, is situated at the summit of Mount Jarmak, the highest mountain in Palestine, approximately 1,200 meters above sea level.

The Meron base is operated by the 11th Battalion of the Israeli Air Force.

Hezbollah asserted, “The Israel’s Meron military base is the sole center for air management, monitoring, and control in the north, and the Israeli military has no alternative.”

The Meron military base of the Israeli military is one of two bases overseeing, monitoring, and controlling air operations in Syria and Lebanon, with the other being the Mitzpe Ramon base in the south, managing air operations in the southern part of the region.

“The rocket attack on the Meron military base is part of the response to Israel’s assassination of Hamas leader Saleh al-Arouri and his commanders in Beirut a few days ago,” the armed group stated.

On January 2nd, Israeli aircraft launched an airstrike killing Hamas leader Saleh al-Arouri in the capital of Lebanon, Beirut. The attack took place in Dahiyeh, a stronghold of the Hezbollah movement that also housed Hamas offices in the Mediterranean country.

Media reports indicated that, in addition to Arouri, two senior commanders of the al-Qassam Brigades and four others whose identities remain unknown were killed. Arouri served as the deputy chairman of Hamas’s political bureau and was a founder of the group’s military wing in the West Bank.

Born on August 19, 1966, in Ramallah in the West Bank during Jordanian rule, he received his education at Hebron University and played a foundational role in establishing the al-Qassam Brigades. — DSA
