3 members were killed Hizb allah The Lebanese and a Syrian were accompanying them in an Israeli air strike in southern Syria, according to identical sources, at a time when the occupation army announced launching new raids on Hezbollah targets in Lebanon.
Reuters quoted two local sources, which it described as close to Damascus, that 3 Lebanese Hezbollah members and a Syrian who was accompanying them were killed in an Israeli drone strike that targeted their car in southwestern Syria on Friday.
Israel has launched hundreds of air strikes on Syria since the outbreak of the crisis in 2011, targeting Iranian-backed factions and Hezbollah members in particular, in addition to Syrian army positions.
But it has intensified these attacks since the start of its ongoing war on the Gaza Strip on October 7, and rarely claims responsibility for these strikes or their results.
Raids in southern Lebanon
In a related context, the Israeli army announced today, Saturday, that its warplanes carried out raids last night on a series of Hezbollah targets in Lebanon.
Army spokesman, Avichay Adraee, said on the X website that among the targets included in the Israeli raids were what he called “operational command headquarters” belonging to the party.
He pointed out that last night, several missiles were fired from Lebanon towards Israel, indicating that the Israeli army responded to the sources of fire.
There was no immediate comment from Hezbollah regarding the news of the killing of its members in southern Syria, and the bombing that targeted its headquarters in Lebanon, but it announced on Friday evening the killing of 3 of its members, without going into details.
The party also announced on Friday that it had killed two Israeli soldiers while attacking 11 Israeli military sites off the southern border of Lebanon.
It is noteworthy that Hezbollah announces daily the implementation of operations against Israeli military targets near the border, since the beginning of the occupation’s aggression against Gaza strip To date, it has led to the death of more than 17,000 people, most of them women and children, in addition to 46,000 injured, and massive destruction to residential neighborhoods, infrastructure, and hospitals.
