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

He is named as Hassan Saleh.

The Kan public broadcaster cites Lebanese reports as saying Saleh was a senior commander in Hezbollah’s elite Radwan force, although the terror group does not refer to him as such in its announcement. Sky News Arabia claims he was a “prominent missile expert.”

Saleh was reportedly killed in a strike earlier today in the southern Lebanon town of Kfar Remen, along with another Hezbollah member identified by media reports as Hisham Abdullah.

Saleh’s death brings the terror group’s official toll since the beginning of the war in the Gaza Strip to 207.
