Israeli forces eliminate two hezbollah members in south lebanon.

Hezbollah reported the loss of two of its members due to Israeli fire on Tuesday, with the Israeli army claiming the elimination of “two significant” individuals affiliated with the Iran-backed group in southern Lebanon.

Following Hamas’s unprecedented attack on Israel on October 7, triggering conflict in Gaza, there has been a consistent exchange of fire between Hezbollah and the Israeli army along the border. Notably, Hezbollah has intensified its rocket attacks on Israeli targets in recent days.

According to a source close to Hezbollah, an Israeli drone strike in Lebanon resulted in the death of an engineer from Hezbollah’s air defense forces while he was traveling in a vehicle. The strike targeted the Abu al-Aswad area near Tyre, approximately 35 kilometers (22 miles) from the border.

Hezbollah confirmed the deaths of two fighters, one of whom was killed overnight.

The Israeli military stated that it had targeted “two significant terrorists in Hezbollah’s aerial unit” during operations conducted both on Tuesday morning and overnight.

Additionally, both Hezbollah and Israel acknowledged an incident on Sunday evening when Hezbollah successfully shot down an Israeli drone.

Since October 7, the conflict has claimed at least 378 lives in Lebanon, primarily Hezbollah fighters, along with 70 civilian casualties, according to an AFP tally. On the Israeli side of the border, 11 soldiers and eight civilians have been reported killed.
