Among three fighters killed Wednesday in an Israeli strike in Nabatieh, in the south of Lebanon, figure Ali al-Debs. This high-ranking military official had already been injured a few days ago in the same city, when his car was attacked by a drone.

THE Hezbollah announced the firing of dozens of rockets against Israeli positions in the Galilee in response to the deadly strike carried out on Wednesday in Nabatieh.

Hassan Nasrallah’s party has already lost nearly 190 fighters, including one of the main leaders of his elite al-Radwan force and two commanders. At least 300 other party members were injured, including dozens seriously, in Israeli air raids and artillery fire.

The high number of victims in 24 hours testifies to the intensity of the fighting on the Lebanese-Israeli front.

The spokesperson for the UN peacekeepers deployed in southern Lebanon, Andrea Tenenti, warned this Thursday against a “ disturbing transformation » regarding the level of hostilities along the border.
