Hezbollah names slain operative after Israel said to hit car in Tyre

Hezbollah says one of its operatives was killed in fighting with Israel, hours after Lebanese security sources told Reuters one of the terror group’s field commanders had been targeted in an alleged Israeli airstrike on a car in southern Lebanon’s Tyre.

The operative is named as Hussein Ibrahim Makki from the southern Lebanese town of Beit Yahoun. He was in his mid-50s.

Emergency responders said two others were wounded in the strike.

The Hezbollah statement does not list a rank or role for Makki.
