Hezbollah field commander killed in Israeli drone strike

The Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement says a field commander of the group was killed on Monday after the Israeli military carried out an airstrike targeting his vehicle in southern Lebanon close to the border with the 1948 occupied territories, Press TV reports.    

In a statement, Hezbollah said that Muhammad Mustafa Ayoub had been killed in the Israeli drone strike on the outskirts of Selaa village in the Tyre district. 

It added that his death brings to 343 the number of Hezbollah fighters killed ever since the Tel Aviv regime began to conduct attacks on southern Lebanon in October last year after it  launched its genocidal war on Gaza.

Earlier in the day, Israeli aircraft fired two missiles on the border town of Mays al-Jabal as artillery shelling hit the border towns of Khiam, Kfar Hamam, Rashaya al-Fukhar and Kfarkela, as well as the Marjeyoun plain.

A few airstrikes and intermittent artillery shelling had also targeted several Lebanese border towns on Sunday.
