Arabic media reports that one of the Hezbollah operatives killed earlier this afternoon in an alleged Israeli drone strike on a car traveling in the southern Lebanese town of Nabatieh was Abbas Al-Debs.

Al-Debs was tied to the Islamic Revoolutionary Guard Corps and was helping Iran set up air defenses in Syria, Arabic media reports.

Army Radio reports that Al-Debs was also the commander of the area from which anti-tank fire was launched at the northern Israeli town of Kiryat Shmona.

It says the strike was carried out in response to that tank fire striking an IDF base nearby and seriously injuring one of the soldiers there.
