A Palestinian security official tells AFP that a senior Hamas member allegedly targeted in an alleged Israeli airstrike earlier today in Lebanon survived the attack.
The strike on a vehicle in the village of Jadra, some 60 kilometers (37 miles) from the Israeli border, allegedly targeted Basel Salah, a Hamas operative charged with recruiting and managing members of the terror group, including in the West Bank, The Times of Israel reported earlier.
Salah is believed to have been wounded in the strike.
The Hamas unit Salah was a member of was headed by Azzam Al-Aqraa, who was killed in the alleged Israeli strike on Beirut last month, also killing the terror group’s deputy leader Saleh al-Arouri.
Salah allegedly was involved in recruiting Hamas members for years, even amid the war in Gaza.
