Airstrike blamed on Israel hits car in southern Lebanon, killing 1

An apparent Israeli airstrike on a car in southern Lebanon killed at least one person, officials say.

State media and witnesses say the strike happened in the area of Adloun, between the coastal cities of Sidon and Tyre, about 40 kilometers (25 miles) north of the border with Israel.

It was not immediately clear who was killed.

The Lebanese terror group Hezbollah and allied groups have been clashing with Israeli forces along the border for more than six months against the backdrop of Israel’s war against Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

There was no immediate comment from the Israeli military on the strike. Israel has regularly carried out targeted killings of Hezbollah and Hamas members in Lebanon, sometimes in areas far from the border.
