The Hezbollah terror group announces the deaths of two members killed “on the road to Jerusalem,” its term for operatives slain in Israeli strikes.

They are named as Hussein al-Dirani from Qsarnaba and Ahmed al-Afi from Brital, two towns in the Baalbek District, close to the Syrian border.

Their deaths bring the terror group’s toll since the beginning of the war in the Gaza Strip to 214.

The announcement comes following reports of two Hezbollah members killed in an alleged Israeli strike on a truck on the Syrian-Lebanon border, near the town of Qusayr.

Hezbollah does not provide further information on where the two members were slain.
