The IDF confirms carrying out this morning’s drone strike in southern Lebanon’s Salaa, killing a “prominent” member of Hezbollah’s rocket unit.

Muhammad Ayoub served in the rocket unit of Hezbollah’s Nasr regional division, according to the IDF.

In recent months, Ayoub was behind several rocket attacks on Israel, and planned to carry out other attacks.

Fighter jets also struck a building used by Hezbollah in southern Lebanon’s Mays al-Jabal, the IDF adds.
