Israel Kills The Most Senior Hezbollah Commander Since October 7 (Photos)

SENIOR HEZBOLLAH COMMANDER Abu Taleb, RESPONSIBLE FOR SOUTHERN LEBANON UP TO LITANI RIVER, KILLED ALONG WITH THREE OTHER SENIOR MEMBERS

Hezbollah reported overnight Wednesday the death of Taleb Sami Abdallah, the commander of its Al Nasr unit known by his call sign Abu Taleb, in an Israeli-linked strike on a house in southern Lebanon. Abu Taleb is reportedly the most senior Hezbollah commander ELIMINATED by ISRAEL since the outbreak of war.

Arab media reported an ISRAELI attack in the southern Lebanese village of Joua.iyya near Tyre. According to reports, four Hezbollah commanders were killed in the attack, including Abu Taleb.

The attack in southern Lebanon was aimed at the Hezbollah leaders' security meeting. This is the harshest Blow since the beginning of the war,” reported Saudi channel Al Hadath.

Reuters quoted a Lebanese official who said Abu Taleb was the most senior Hezbollah operative killed in eight months of conflict. Lebanese security sources emphasized that Abu Taleb outranked Wissam al-Tawil, a high-ranking commander of Hezbollah's elite Radwan Force, who was killed by ISRAEL in January.

According to past reports, the Al Nasr unit commanded by Abu Taleb operates in southern Lebanon, from the Israeli border up to the Litani River. Sources who spoke to Reuters said he commanded the central sector in the border area.

Sky News Arabia reported that three missiles hit a house in Joua.iyya, killing four senior Hezbollah commanders. Arab media identified the other commanders as Ali Salim Sufan, Hussein Qassem Hmeid (call sign Sajid) and Mohammed Hussein Sabra.

The strike on Hezbollah leaders came after another intense day of fighting on the northern front on Shavuot Eve. Hezbollah fired 15 rockets at the Galilee region, with no casualties reported. The IDF intercepted some of the rockets, while others fell in unpopulated areas.
