Hezbollah said on Saturday that it had fired a Burkan short-range ballistic missile at Kiryat Shmona in northern Israel in response to Israeli strikes on South Lebanon, causing injuries. 

At least two projectiles landed inside the city causing damage to infrastructure and property, but no injury," the municipality said. 

At least six rockets targeted the Upper Galilee region since the early morning hours. 

Hezbollah, backed by Iran, has been attacking Israeli territory since October 2023. 80,000 residents of northern Israel have had to flee the area.

The international community does not seem very eager to put pressure on the Shiite militia.

The Lebanese government is under the control of Iran and has no room for maneuver.

As for the Lebanese army, it merely puts on a show.

The Burkan missile series includes several variants such as the Burkan-1, Burkan-2H, and Burkan-3. 

These missiles are notable for their significant range and destructive capabilities, posing substantial threats to regional targets.
