Cameraman killed, 2 journalists injured as IDF fires back at Hezbollah post

A Reuters cameraman has been killed and two reporters have been injured while operating a live feed of the Israel-Lebanon border, Reuters says.

“We are deeply saddened to learn that our videographer, Issam Abdallah, has been killed,” the news agency says. “Issam was part of a Reuters crew in southern Lebanon who was providing a live signal. We are urgently seeking more information, working with authorities in the region, and supporting Issam’s family and colleagues. Our thoughts are with his family at this terrible time.”

Foreign media reports name the injured journalists as Carmen Jokhdar and Ellie Brakhaya from Al Jazeera.

The incident was reported soon after the IDF said its tanks shelled a Hezbollah post on the border in response to Hezbollah gunfire at several IDF military posts.
