The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) attacked two towns in Lebanon on Tuesday morning, killing four Lebanese, including two journalists.
The IOF troops targeted a gathering of media professionals in Tair Harfa town, south of Lebanon, killing Al-Mayadeen TV correspondent Farah Omar, photographer Rabih Maamari, and citizen Hussein Aqeel, while others were wounded.
An elderly woman was killed, and her granddaughter was injured, in a similar attack on an inhabited house in Kafr Kila town in southern Lebanon.
The state-run National News Agency (NNA) said “Israeli aircraft raided inhabited houses in Kfar Kila, leading to the death of citizen Laiqa Sarhan, 80, and the wounding of her granddaughter,” whom it identified as a Syrian national.
Since Tuesday morning, the IOF troops have continued to bomb Lebanese towns on the southern border, mainly Majdal Zoun, Tair Harfa, and Naqoura towns.
Under international law, journalists and civilians should be protected during conflict areas, and targeting them is considered a serious violation, which requires a comprehensive investigation to hold those responsible accountable.
