The Prime Minister of Lebanon claims that Israeli strikes murdered journalists


According to reports from local media, Israeli strikes in Lebanon have resulted in the deaths of four persons, including two journalists. This comes as fighting along the border continues to escalate.

The Prime Minister of Lebanon has condemned the “attack” that took place in the town of Tayr Harfa, which resulted in the death of an Al Mayadeen TV reporter and cameraman in addition to a third guy.

The Israeli military has stated that it has “operated against a threat” in the same region and that it is investigating the incident.

at addition, an elderly woman was apparently murdered at Kfarkela, which is located to the east.

Earlier, Israeli aircraft attacked what the military referred to as “terrorist cells” in the border region. They also attacked targets belonging to the Lebanese group Hezbollah, which has repeatedly fired missiles and mortar shells across the border since the beginning of the conflict between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip six weeks ago.

Arabic television station Al Mayadeen, which is based in Beirut, claimed that its reporter Farah Omar and cameraman Rabih al-Maamari were “deliberately targeted” while reporting from the village of Tayr Harfa, which is around 2 kilometers (1.2 miles) from the border.

“An Israeli warplane fired two rockets on Farah and Rabih’s location,” according to news reports.

“Farah and Rabih had just ended a live broadcast at 10 AM [08:00 GMT], giving updates on the latest Israeli bombardment in South Lebanon.”

A photograph that was shared on social media appeared to show the dead bodies of the journalists lying on the ground close to a TV camera that was ablaze and placed on a tripod.

Another civilian, identified as Hussein Aqeel, was reportedly killed, according to the National News Agency (NNA), which is run by the state of Lebanon. The director of Al Mayadeen, Ghassan bin Jiddo, referred to him as a “contributor” in an interview.

“This attack proves once again that there are no limits to Israeli crimes, and that its only goal is to silence the media that exposes its crimes and attacks,” Lebanese Prime Minister Nabjib Mikati said, according to NNA.

In a statement, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) announced that its forces had “operated against a threat posed from a launching area of the Hezbollah terrorist organization” in the Jibbain area, which is located 1.5 kilometers east of Tayr Harfa. The location of the Jibbain area is described as being “1.5 kilometers east of Tayr Harfa.”

“This is a region where active hostilities are taking place, and where firing exchanges are taking place. The location is hazardous to enter at this time. It was mentioned that the situation was being investigated.

Although the Israeli Defense Forces have in the past stated that they do not intentionally target journalists, it would appear that this is the third attack on journalists operating in southern Lebanon since the beginning of the war.

A hit on a village located farther east along the border, the aftermath of which was witnessed by a BBC team, resulted in the death of a fourth individual, who the NNA identified as an 80-year-old woman named Laiqa Sarhan. Several family members were also injured in the attack.—The-Creator-PELICULA-COMPLETA-ONLINE-en-Espanol-y-3ulm8hu67nss1l2–l1sw13o11b5xmov–3nwot3y71sywg1y–cnyjzyj1u3e3xzb

Their home in Kfarkela was struck and sustained significant damage. As family members, including children, who were injured in the incident were being transported to the hospital by ambulance, firefighters from the local civil defense units rushed to the scene to extinguish the fire.

IDF aircraft “struck three armed terrorist cells in the area of the border” and “a number of Hezbollah terror targets, including military infrastructure and structures used for directing terrorist activity” earlier on Tuesday, according to a statement released by the IDF.

Hezbollah is a Shia Islamist organization that is supported by Iran and holds great authority in both the military and the political spheres in Lebanon. Israel, the United Kingdom, the United States, and other countries all consider it to be a terrorist organization.

After the 7th of October, when militants from Gaza-based Hamas, which is another Iran-backed group that is also classified as a terrorist group by Israel and Western nations, assaulted southern Israel, they killed over 1,200 people and took approximately 240 others captive. This caused the lethal exchanges along the border to grow and become more intense.

In retaliation for the attack, Israel initiated a military effort to wipe out the Hamas organization. According to the administration that is administered by Hamas, there have been more than 14,000 people murdered in Gaza.

The incident that took place in Lebanon on Tuesday takes place almost a week after an Israeli attack struck a location in the hamlet of Yaroun where a group of journalists was working.

Issam Abdallah, a cameraman for the Reuters news agency, was murdered on October 13 by Israeli attacks, while six other journalists who were reporting on clashes near the border were injured in the incident.

According to the United Nations, the Ministry of Public Health of Lebanon has reported that at least 77 persons have been killed as a result of violent hostilities near the border with Israel. This number includes both combatants and civilians.

According to the Israeli government, there have been nine fatalities in northern Israel during the past week, including six troops and three civilians.
