A suspected Israeli airstrike struck a residential building in Janta, South Lebanon, on Thursday evening, causing a massive explosion that was heard across the region, as reported by Lebanese Broadcasting Corporation International. According to local media, at least one civilian was killed and several others were injured in the suspected strike.
Videos from the scene showed massive fire in the area. The building is located in the Tyre region, more than 20 kilometers from the southern border. Unconfirmed reports have surfaced suggesting that the Israeli airstrike targeted a senior member of Hezbollah. However, as of now, neither Lebanon nor Israel has issued official statements regarding this claim.
The attack comes after Hezbollah said it had launched rockets and drones at nine Israeli military sites on Thursday. The Lebanon-based group said that the attack was in retaliation to a large scale Israeli attack on Tuesday that killed a senior field commander.
Israeli strikes have killed more than 300 Hezbollah members in Lebanon, news agency Reuters reported. Attacks from Lebanon have killed 18 Israeli soldiers and 10 civilians, Israel says.
"Diplomatically or militarily, peace will be returned to our north. Israel will defend itself. There should not be any doubt about this whatsoever. This (situation) cannot be a sustained reality," Israeli government spokesperson David Mencer said.
Group of Seven leaders meeting in Italy said in a draft communique that they were very concerned by the situation on the Israel-Lebanon border.
