Lebanese claim medics killed in Israeli strike that IDF says hit terror group

The Lebanese Ambulance Association says seven of its volunteers were killed in an Israeli strike in southern Lebanon overnight that the IDF says struck a military building housing a terror group.

The Islamic Emergency and Relief Corps claims that the strike targeted its office in Habbariyah.

Muheddine Qarhani, head of the group, tells reporters at the scene that the center that was struck was set up late last year, after the latest round of violence broke out. He says they were surprised that a paramedic group was targeted.

“They were here waiting to respond to a rescue call and ended up getting hit by missiles that brought the building over their heads,” he says.

The Israeli military said its strike killed a top member of Lebanon’s Sunni Muslim al-Jamaa al-Islamiya terror group and several other terrorists.
