Report: IAF Strikes Hizbullah in Southern Lebanon

According to Hizbullah’s al-Manar TV, Israeli warplanes fired at a target in southern Lebanon on Monday.

“The enemy detonated an explosive device remotely against a telecommunication line in Zrariyeh” village, the Hizbullah television station reported.

The IAF aircraft reportedly struck a site used by the Hizbullah near the town of Zira in southern Lebanon.

Hizbullah, a Shiite Muslim militant organization backed by Syria and Iran and designated a terrorist group by the US. last fought Israel in a month-long conflict in 2006.

The terror group immediately closed the area to ensure reporters, security forces, and peacekeepers could not survey the damage.

Lebanese emergency personnel were reportedly barred from the site, preventing them from treating those potentially wounded in the strike. 

Hizbullah officials also refused to comment on the incident.

The United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon  (UNIFIL) said it was looking into the report.

Our military on the ground are checking these reports about the alleged explosion,” UNIFIL spokesman Andrea Tenenti told reporters.

IDF officials said the army declines to comment on foreign news reports as a matter of policy.
