Shortly before noon on 4 July 2024, the Lebanon-based Hizballah militant group launched more than 200 rockets and at least 20 drones at Israeli military bases in northern Israel. The Israeli military reported that many of the rockets were intercepted, but at least one Israel Defense Forces soldier was killed. Property damage was reported at a mall in the northwestern city of Acre due to falling shrapnel from an interceptor missile. Additionally, several fires reportedly broke out on agricultural land in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. Hizballah claimed that the attack was in retaliation for the death of one of its senior commanders, who was killed by an Israeli strike on 3 July.
