Israeli Strike Kills Three Hezbollah Fighters In Lebanon

Saturday, 03/02/2024

Amid recent escalation of military tensions, an Israeli drone strike in south Lebanon killed three Hezbollah fighters on Saturday.

According to security sources in Lebanon, the incident unfolded on a coastal road near the town of Naqoura, targeting individuals traveling in a car. The Israeli military has stated that it is currently assessing the reports surrounding the incident.

The fighters have been reportedly identified as Mohammad Ali Ghobris, alias Karballa, hailing from Tyredebba; Mustafa Hussein Salman, known as Al-Hurr, from Majdal Zun; and Ali Abdul Nabi Qassem, alias Siraj, born in Mahrouna—all towns in southern Lebanon.

The strike marks another deadly episode amid ongoing Israeli airstrikes in Lebanon since October, resulting in the deaths of over 200 Hezbollah fighters and approximately 50 civilians. Hezbollah has been launching attacks from Lebanon into Israel that have claimed the lives of twelve Israeli soldiers and five civilians. The escalating violence has forced tens of thousands of Israelis and Lebanese to flee their homes along both sides of the border.

Israel rarely offers detailed information regarding individual strikes conducted within Syria or Lebanon, yet it has consistently affirmed its resolve to thwart Iran's efforts to extend its influence across the region.

Similar to the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas, Hezbollah maintains close ties with Iran. Hezbollah claims that its operations along the border aim to provide solidarity and assistance to Palestinians enduring Israeli attacks in the Gaza Strip.
