Elite Hezbollah commander killed in southern Lebanon strike — sources

A field commander in Lebanon’s Hezbollah elite Al Radwan unit was killed along with two others in an Israeli strike on Al Sultanya village in Southern Lebanon, two security sources tell Reuters.

Hezbollah said late Sunday that a member of the group from Kafr Kila, a town on the border with Israel, had been killed “while carrying out his jihadist duty.”

The announcement came after the Israel Defense Forces said it had struck Hezbollah positions in Kafr Kila, as well as a rocket launcher in Yaroun, publishing a video of the strike.

Hezbollah has named 272 members who have been killed by Israel during skirmishes which began on October 8, mostly in Lebanon but some also in Syria. In Lebanon, another 53 operatives from other terror groups, a Lebanese soldier, and at least 60 civilians, three of whom were journalists, have been killed.
