Border clashes: Latest developments

W300

An Israeli drone struck Monday a car in the southern town of Bint Jbeil seriously wounding a Hezbollah official as Israeli warplanes bombed the southern villages of Tayr Harfa, al-Odaisseh, al-Khiam, Marwahin, al-Jebbayn and Maroun al-Rass.

The strikes came as tensions across the Middle East grow with the Israel-Hamas war, a drone attack last month that killed three U.S. troops in northeastern Jordan near the Syrian border, and attacks by Yemen's Iran-backed Houthi rebels on vessels passing through the Red Sea.

Drone strikes in Lebanon blamed on Israel have so far killed several officials from Hezbollah as well as the Palestinian militant group Hamas.

A drone strike Saturday on the coastal town of Jadra killed two people and wounded two others.

On Sunday, Hezbollah targeted five posts in northern Israel while Amal announced the death of two of its members in south Lebanon. The group's chief Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri had said last week that Amal is "resisting" in the south "within its military capabilities".

Military capabilities? I thought only the hezb was allowed to be armed. Bunch of liars and hypocrites.
