Hezbollah Rockets Kill Two Israelis After Assassination Of Nasrallah’s Ex-Bodyguard (Videos)

Illustrative image.

Two Israeli civilians were killed in a rocket barrage fired by Hezbollah at the Israeli-occupied Syrian Golan Heights on July 9 a few hours after one of its senior members was killed in an Israeli strike on the Beirut-Damascus highway in Syria.

The man and woman were killed when a rocket directly struck a vehicle they were in near the Nafah Junction on Route 91 in Golan.

Claiming responsibility for the deadly attack, Hezbollah said that it fired a barrage of rockets at the headquarters of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) 210th Golan Division at Nafah base.

The group confirmed that the rocket attack was carried out in response to the death of its member Yasser Qarnabash in Syria earlier in the day. Hezbollah had mourned Qarnabash but did not detail his role or rank.

Qarnabash was reportedly killed when a strike hit his vehicle near a Syrian military checkpoint close to the village of al-Saboura on the Damascus-Beirut highway. The strike was attributed to Israel. However, the IDF has not yet claimed responsibility.

Speaking to AFP on the condition of anonymity, a source close to Hezbollah said that Qarnabash was a former bodyguard to Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah.

Another member of Hezbollah reportedly killed in the same strike, and the Syrian driver was critically wounded. According to security sources, the member was a mid-ranking official involved in transporting weapons across the border on behalf of the Iran-backed group.

In an initial response to the Golan rocket attack, the IDF struck targets of Hezbollah in the southern Lebanese towns of Qabrikha and Kafr Kila.

Overnight, more strikes hit air defense facilities of Hezbollah in the town of Janta in the northeastern Baalbek District and in Baraachit in southern Lebanon, according to the IDF, which also said that a weapons depot of the group was targeted in Kafr Kila. There were no reports of casualties.

The clashes on the Lebanese-Israeli border first broke out after the start of the war in Gaza last October, with Hezbollah and its allies carrying out attacks in support of the Strip.

So far, the border clashes have resulted in 12 civilian deaths on the Israeli side, as well as the deaths of at least 16 IDF soldiers and reservists. On the Lebanese side, more than 500 people have been killed, including 347 fighters of Hezbollah and at least 90 civilians.

“transporting weapons across the border on behalf of the iran-backed terror group.” given that according to the lancet the zionist state has now murdered 10% of the gaza ghetto’s population, to call hezbollah a :terror” group while not doing so for the zionist state, is exactly the scale of values that drives so many global conflicts.
