Lebanon’s Hezbollah terror group says on its Telegram account that four of its fighters were killed in southern Lebanon, APA reports citing The Times of Israel.

Hezbollah initially said three were killed before updating the number to four later in the day.

The statement gave no detail about how the four were killed but said they “were martyred on the road to (liberate) Jerusalem.”

Security sources said the first three were killed in Israeli strikes on two houses in the Lebanese village of Kafr Kila near the border where Hezbollah maintains security control.

Hezbollah, an ally of Palestinian Islamist terror group Hamas, has been exchanging near-daily fire with Israel across Lebanon’s southern frontier since the eruption of the Israeli-Hamas war in Gaza in early October, when thousands of Hamas-led terrorists killed 1,200 people and took some 240 hostages.

The Israeli military said on Monday it struck a series of targets in Lebanon, including “military sites” where Hezbollah was operating.

Since October 8, Hezbollah-led forces have attacked Israeli communities and military posts along the border on a near-daily basis, with the group saying it is doing so to support Hamas.

Hezbollah has named 138 members who have been killed by Israel during the ongoing skirmishes, mostly in Lebanon but some also in Syria. In Lebanon, another 19 operatives from other terror groups, a Lebanese soldier, and at least 19 civilians, three of whom were journalists, have been killed.
