Two Israelis killed in their home after Lebanese missiles launched on 100th day of Hamas war

Two Israeli civilians were killed in northern Israel on Sunday after a missile was fired from Lebanon and hit their home. The attack could present a new element in the ongoing fight between Israel and Hamas, according to the New York Post.

The strike comes as more than 20,000 Palestinians have been killed in the conflict and pushed some 2.3 million Gazans from their homes. It has also been reported that nearly 50% of the Gazan population is now at risk of starvation. The war erupted after Hamas terrorists launched a surprise attack against the Jewish state on October 7, killing 1,200 Israelis and abducting 240 more.

But now the Jewish state has engaged in conflict with Lebanon's Hezbollah terrorist organization. And militias supported by Iran have launched attacks against U.S. targets in both Iraq and Syria. The fallout has resulted in the U.S. carrying out several airstrikes, according to the report.

It does not appear the conflict has an end in sight. Following Hamas' attack against Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu insisted that the terrorists needed to be eradicated. However, Hezbollah's leader, Hassan Nasrallah, said his group would not stop its attacks until there was a ceasefire in Gaza.

“We are continuing, and our front is inflicting losses on the enemy and putting pressure on displaced people,” Nasrallah said in a speech. He appears to have been referring to the tens of thousands of Israelis who have been forced to flee northern border areas.

South Africa has recently claimed that Israel has committed war crimes in the region, but Israel's legal team in The Hague has denied the allegations, according to the Times of Israel. The exchange took place at the International Court of Justice on Friday.

The report noted that Israel's legal representatives suggested that the international court has no jurisdiction over South Africa's complaints since they relate to armed conflict and not genocide.

They also "argued that 'random' inflammatory comments of Israeli politicians did not reflect policy determined in the state bodies making war policy; and insisted that the widespread harm to Palestinian civilians during the war was a result of Hamas’s massive use of civilian infrastructure for military purposes, and not genocidal acts," according to the Times of Israel.

Foreign Ministry legal adviser Tal Becker condemned the arguments made by South Africa's legal team on Thursday, stating that it was a "grossly distorted story."

“If there were acts of genocide, they have been perpetrated against Israel,” Becker said, alluding to the October 7 attack carried out by Hamas.
