The Lebanese group Hezbollah said that during the current round of fighting, it has killed or injured 120 Israeli soldiers.

The Lebanese Al-Manar channel, which is close to Hezbollah, late Tuesday published an infographic attributed to the group’s military media including the toll of Israeli army losses on the Lebanese border, over a period of 23 days, since Oct. 8, one day after Palestinian group Hamas’ surprise attack on Israel.

“Hezbollah has carried out 105 attacks since Oct. 8, targeting intelligence and communications systems, jamming systems, and 33 radar (probes),” according to the channel.

Hezbollah “destroyed two troop carriers, two Humvee (military vehicles), and nine tanks, in addition to targeting 120 soldiers who were killed or wounded, in addition to targeting 105 military sites, and destroying 69 communications systems, in addition to destroying 140 surveillance cameras and 17 jamming systems."

Hezbollah was also able to "destroy 33 radar and 27 intelligence systems, and shoot down a drone. As a result of the resistance operations, 28 settlements were evacuated and 65,000 settlers were displaced into the occupied interior," according to the channel.

Hezbollah previously said that on Tuesday afternoon, it had targeted an Israeli infantry force near the Israeli Al-Jardah site with artillery shells, causing confirmed casualties.

It announced that its fighters targeted the Israeli Al-Marj site with weapons. They also targeted a Merkava tank with guided missiles as it moved in the vicinity of the Pranit Barracks, and they targeted an Israeli force in the vicinity of the Israeli Orontes site.

Border clashes since Oct. 7 have been the deadliest since Hezbollah and Israel fought a full-scale war in 2006, when the Lebanese group struck major Israeli cities with rockets, causing significant damage.

The border tension comes as Israel widened air and ground operations in the Gaza Strip following a cross-border attack by Hamas on Israeli border towns.
