Israeli raid kills 1 militant in S. Lebanon, Hezbollah says downs Israeli drone


One Amal Movement member was killed and two others wounded on Sunday in an Israeli airstrike on a southern Lebanese village, according to Lebanese military sources.

The sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the casualties resulted from a raid on a house in the center of the southeastern village of Kafr Kila.

The sources noted that the Israeli forces carried out 12 airstrikes on eight border towns and villages in southern Lebanon, destroying 15 houses and damaging 25 others.

Meanwhile, Hezbollah said its fighters attacked Israeli sites of Al-Malikiyah, Misgav Am, Jal al-Alam, and the Doviv Barracks. It also stated on the evening that it had downed an Israeli Hermes 450 drone above the Lebanese village of Aaichiyeh in Jezzine District.

The armed group said the Israeli drone was attacking locations in southern Lebanon. Both Hezbollah and Amal Movement are notable Shiite parties in Lebanon.

Additionally, the Al-Qassam Brigades in Lebanon, the military wing of the Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), claimed that it bombed Israeli “Shomera” Barracks in the western sector of the Upper Galilee area with 20 Grad missiles.

Tensions along the Lebanon-Israel border escalated on Oct. 8, 2023, following a barrage of rockets launched by Hezbollah toward Israel in solidarity with Hamas’ attack on Israel the day before. Israel then retaliated by firing heavy artillery toward southeastern Lebanon.

The confrontations between Hezbollah and Israel have killed 433 people on the Lebanese side, including 277 Hezbollah members and 76 civilians, according to Lebanese security sources.
