Israeli airstrike kills 2 civilians in southern Lebanon

An Israeli military strike has killed two people in an area in southern Lebanon, as fighting intensified between the Tel Aviv regime and the Hezbollah resistance movement.

Lebanon’s official National News Agency reported that two civilians lost their lives when an Israeli unmanned aerial vehicle targeted their home in the village of Houla on Sunday.

An unnamed local official told the AFP news agency that those killed were “two brothers, shepherds whose house was destroyed.”

The development comes a day after four people, including a paramedic and a woman, were killed in Israeli airstrikes in south Lebanon.

The operations room of the Hezbollah-affiliated Islamic Health Committee stated that “an Israeli drone strike targeted an ambulance… One rescuer was martyred and another wounded” in the border town of Naqoura.

The operations room later said an Israeli strike on the town of Adloun, deep in south Lebanon near Sidon, had killed a woman and wounded four other people.

Additionally, Hezbollah announced in separate statements that two of its fighters had been killed, without specifying where.

The Israeli military has bombarded several villages in southern and eastern Lebanon over the weekend, wounding 16 children in one airstrike.

The Islamic Health Committee said the Saturday strike on the southern village of Siddikine wounded children between the ages of four and 14.

The Israeli regime has repeatedly attacked southern Lebanon since October 7, when it launched a genocidal war on Gaza that has killed at least 36,439 Palestinians, most of them women and children.

In retaliation, Hezbollah has launched near-daily rocket attacks on Israeli positions.

At least 451 people have been killed on the Lebanese border, including more than 80 civilians, according to an AFP tally.

Hezbollah has already fought off two Israeli wars against Lebanon in 2000 and 2006. The resistance forced the regime to retreat in both conflicts.
