JERUSALEM, 1 Sep. –
The Israeli Army has reported that it has launched a hundred artillery shells over southern Lebanon in retaliation for the anti-tank missile attack against an Israeli military base in which there are no injuries or deaths.
In addition, Israeli Army sources cited by the country's press have confirmed that artillery and combat helicopters have been used in the response.
These incidents endanger the ceasefire in force in the area since 2006, whose guarantor is the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (FINUL), which has 11,155 troops.
Spain has 600 military personnel stationed at the Miguel de Cervantes base in Marjayún, in southern Lebanon bordering Israel in the framework of FINUL under the umbrella of Resolution 1701 of the UN Security Council.
In the summer of 2006, for about a month, Hezbollah faced the Israeli Army in a war that resulted in 1,200 dead in Lebanon, mostly civilians, and 158 dead in Israel, mostly military.
