Wednesday 12-June-2024


Five people were killed, including three Syrians, in an Israeli airstrike that targeted a convoy of tankers transporting diesel in eastern Lebanon on Tuesday.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) also reported on the strikes, saying they targeted a road between Lebanon’s Hermel and Syria’s border area of Al-Qusayr.

“Three Syrians who work with Hezbollah and two Lebanese were killed in the Israeli airstrike,” the SOHR’s director, Rami Abdel Rahman, said.

A Lebanese citizen was also killed in an Israeli airstrike in southern Lebanon, only a few hours after Hezbollah mourned three of its fighters who were killed in night strikes near the border with Syria.

The Israeli airstrikes also targeted a building in the Lebanese Hermel region, about 140 kilometers from the Israeli border.

The National News Agency reported that a civilian working for the Lebanon Water Corporation died of serious injuries which he sustained during the attack.

For its part, the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance group said its fighters bombed Kfar Blum and Gesher Haziv in northern Israel with dozens of Katyusha rockets.

Moreover, Hezbollah said it bombed a group of Israeli soldiers at the Birkat Risha near Lebanon’s southern border.

Since the Israeli war on Gaza started on October 7, Hezbollah has exchanged deadly fire across the border with Israel in protest against the Israeli atrocities against Palestinian civilians in the Gaza Strip.
