Israel strikes car in Bazouriyeh as border skirmishes continue


An Israeli drone strike Friday on a car in the Tyre district town of Bazouriyeh killed a “prominent” Hezbollah military commander, Israeli media reports said.

Hezbollah meanwhile announced the death of three more of its fighters in the conflict, without mentioning where they were killed. It identified them as Ahmad Jawad Chehimi, 60, who hailed from the southern town of Markaba, Mustafa Ahmad Makki, 41, who hailed from the southern town of Tebnin, and Ibrahim Anis al-Zein, 42, who hailed from the southern town of Chhour.

Alert sirens later sounded in Israel’s Kiryat Shmona, with Israeli reports saying that a “suspicious object launched from Lebanon was intercepted.”

Hezbollah meanwhile announced two separate rocket attacks on the Zibdine barracks in the occupied Shebaa Farms.

Israel has exchanged near-daily cross-border fire with Hezbollah in Lebanon since the Gaza war began, sparking fears of a major regional conflagration.

In Lebanon, cross-border fire since October has killed at least 349 people, mostly Hezbollah fighters, but also including at least 68 civilians, according to an AFP tally.

The fighting has displaced tens of thousands of people in southern Lebanon and in northern Israel, where the military says 10 soldiers and eight civilians have been killed.

Hassan is safe, it is all what counts. All others could die for the cause and lose everything for the glory of fighting for nothing. Hassan is winning from his hiding hole while he is throwing young men into the hell of war.

Soudain une organisation israélienne qui prône la colonisation du sud du Liban fait son apparition et organise sa première réunion publique.

Le projet du “Grand Israël” est en marche

I'm sure Hassan will scurry throughout the sewers of Beirut knowing that the Israelis can snuff him out anytime that they want- he better leave for Iran and sit at the feet of those filthy Iranian dogs.

The best solution is to nuke Iran and eliminate it off the face of this planet- cancer never dies unless destroyed.

Iran is only good at executing its own people for even the most minor of crimes.
