A Hezbollah commander, two other terror group members, and seven civilians were killed in an Israeli strike in south Lebanon, a security source said Thursday, clarifying the death toll from a raid a day earlier.

The same Hezbollah commander had previously been targeted and wounded in an Israeli strike in the southern Lebanon town of Nabatiyeh a week earlier, the security source says, requesting anonymity as they were not authorized to speak to the media.

At the time of the initial strike, he was identified by media reports as Abbas al-Debes. Hezbollah’s announcement today identifies him as Ali Muhammad al-Debes, 48.

Media reports say he was responsible for Palestinian affairs in the Hezbollah terror group.
