Hezbollah: Israel kills a senior leader in Lebanon – “Things will get worse now”

Three security sources said that a senior commander in Hezbollah's Radwan Force was killed today in an Israeli raid in southern Lebanon.

The killing of Wissam Al-Tawil comes in the wake of the killing of Hamas leader Saleh Al-Arouri

The sources said that he is Wissam Al-Taweel, deputy commander of the Radwan Force. They said he and another Hezbollah fighter were killed when their car was hit in an air strike in the Lebanese village of Majdal Selm.

“It is a very painful blow,” one source said. “Things are going to heat up now,” another source said.

More than 130 Hezbollah fighters have been killed since October 7

Israeli air strikes have killed more than 130 Hezbollah fighters in southern Lebanon since cross-border bombing began after Hamas attacked Israeli territory on October 7. 19 others were killed in Syria.

Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah warned Israel in two televised speeches last week against waging a large-scale war in Lebanon.

Nasrallah said: “Whoever thinks about war with us, in short, will regret it.”
