Hezbollah official killed in Israeli strike in S. Lebanon

Hezbollah official killed in Israeli strike in S. Lebanon

Beirut, May 21 (UNI) A Hezbollah official was killed and a civilian wounded on Monday evening in an Israeli attack on a motorcycle in the southern Lebanese village of Mansouri, according to Lebanese military sources.
The sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that an Israeli drone fired two air-to-surface missiles at the motorcycle that was traveling in Mansouri in the Tyre district, killing its driver and wounding a passer-by.
The sources confirmed that the killed man, named Qasim Saqlawi, was a local official of Hezbollah from the southern municipality of Deir Qanoun En Nahr.
Tensions along the Lebanon-Israel border escalated on Oct. 8, 2023, following a barrage of rockets launched by the Lebanese armed group Hezbollah toward Israel in solidarity with Hamas' attack on Israel the day before. Israel then retaliated by firing heavy artillery toward southeastern Lebanon.
The confrontations between Hezbollah and Israel have killed 478 people on the Lebanese side, including 302 Hezbollah members and 89 civilians, according to Lebanese security sources.
