A vehicle was attacked this morning (Friday) by an unmanned aerial vehicle in the town of Bazourieh in the Tyre district in southern Lebanon.

The Lebanese Al-Akhbar newspaper reported that the person who was in the vehicle that was attacked by a UAV in Bazourieh was killed. According to the reports, the target was a senior official in the Hezbollah terrorist organization responsible for launching rockets at Israel.

Later in the day, the IDF confirmed that an IAF aircraft struck and eliminated Ali Abed Akhsan Naim, the Deputy Commander of Hezbollah’s Rocket and Missile Unit, in the area of Bazouriye in Lebanon.

Syrian media reported overnight Thursday that Israel carried out an air strike in the vicinity of Aleppo, in the northwest of the country.

According to the reports, the country’s air defense systems were activated in the area following the attack.

A website affiliated with the Syrian opposition reported that the strike targeted the international airport in Aleppo.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which is affiliated with the opposition and operates from London, reported that three explosions were heard in the vicinity of the airport.
