By Hamodia Staff

An IDF aircraft targeted vehicle and eliminated Hassan Hossein Salami, the Hezbollah terrorist responsible for the Hajir region, in a strike in southern Lebanon on Monday. Salami’s rank is equivalent to that of a brigade commander.

Salami was part of Hezbollah’s Nasser Unit and commanded recent terrorist activities by Hezbollah against Israeli civilians and soldiers, including anti-tank missile launches toward Kiryat Shmona and the headquarters of the 769th Brigade.

On Monday morning, an IDF tank struck a Hezbollah military compound in Kfarkela.

In addition, on Monday afternoon, IDF fighter jets struck Hezbollah military compounds in the area of Ayta ash Shab in southern Lebanon.

A short while later, IDF fighter jets struck a launch site in the area of Kawkaba from which dozens of launches were carried out toward the Golan Heights approximately 7:00 p.m. Monday evening.
