Israel-Hezbollah border clashes: Latest developments


Israeli warplanes and drones raided Wednesday the southern border towns of Mays al-Jabal and Aita al-Shaab while artillery shelled Markaba and the outskirts of Tayrharfa and Alma al-Shaab.

"Israeli warplanes carried out an airstrike near Aita al-Shaab's school, less than an hour after a drone targeted the same area in the town," the National News agency said.

Hezbollah for its part targeted a military post in northern Israel, as it announced the death of two of its members "on the road to Jerusalem" after a strike overnight on al-Odaisseh that killed two people, according to the NNA.

On Tuesday, Hezbollah carried out seven attacks on Israeli positions.

The fighting has so far killed at least 426 people in Lebanon, mostly militants but also including 82 civilians, according to an AFP tally.

Israel says 14 soldiers and 11 civilians have been killed on its side of the border.

The violence has raised fears of all-out conflict between Hezbollah and Israel, which went to war in 2006.
