Greek church in northern Israel hit by Hezbollah anti-tank missile

·

The Saint Mary’s Greek Orthodox Church in Irquit, northern Israel has been hit by a Hezbollah anti-tank missile, according to The Times of Israel.

Israel’s Defence Forces (IDF) shared on X that “the attack is not only a clear violation of UN Security Council Resolution 1701 but also a violation of the freedom of worship.”

The IDF also confirmed that nine soldiers were injured after rescuing an elderly man in his 80’s who was found wounded from the Hezbollah attack. The missile was fired from Lebanon.

One of the soldiers has been put in a serious condition, while the others were reported in light-to-moderate condition.

The military in Israel said that Hezbollah also fired a missile from near a mosque in southern Lebanon’s Yaroun area.

“This is further proof of Hezbollah’s cynical exploitation of Lebanese civilians and holy sites for its terrorist activity,” the Israel Defense Forces said.
