The Hamas terror group names three members killed in an Israeli drone strike while attempting to infiltrate into northern Israel from Lebanon, close to the border town of Margaliot, on October 14.

In a statement, Hamas says Suhaib Kayed, Ahmad Othman, and Yahya Abdel Razek died in a “heroic operation” near Margaliot.

The Israel Defense Forces at the time said it had identified a group of terrorists, apparently affiliated with a Palestinian group and not the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah, trying to cross the border fence before they were struck and killed.
