Hezbollah commander among those killed in Israeli attack

According to security sources, a commander of the pro-Iranian Shiite militia Hezbollah was also killed in an Israeli attack in southern Lebanon.

Security sources said today that he had already been targeted and injured in an Israeli attack a week earlier. He ended up being killed in the previous day's attack. The death toll from the attack rose to ten.

According to Lebanese information, a total of three Hezbollah fighters and seven civilians were killed. The Israeli attack on a five-story building in Nabatiya came in response to a rocket attack yesterday on a military base in Safed, in northern Israel.

A 20-year-old female soldier was also killed. The Israeli military then said it had launched an extensive wave of attacks on Lebanese territory.

Israel's Chief of Staff Herzi Halevi said his country was preparing for a possible war in the north. The head of Hezbollah's Executive Council, Hashim Safi al-Din, threatened Israel with retaliation.

Civilians killed on both sides

Since the start of the war in Gaza, following the Hamas massacre in Israel on October 7, there have been repeated clashes between the Israeli army and militant groups such as Hezbollah in the Israeli-Lebanese border region. Since then, Iran-backed Hezbollah has reported nearly 200 fighters killed in its own ranks.

Civilians were also killed on both sides. Tens of thousands of residents also left their hometowns in both countries. It is the worst escalation since the second Lebanon war in 2006.
