Lebanese Soldier Killed in IDF Shelling

The Lebanese military today confirmed the death of one Lebanese soldier, as well as the wounding of three others, from IDF shelling of Southern Lebanon.

Notably, this is the first Lebanese soldier to have been killed since the start of the Israel-Gaza war on October 7th, which has seen consistent clashes between Israel and Hezbollah.

UNIFIL, the UN force in Lebanon, released a statement confirming the incident and urging “those exchanging fire along the Blue Line” (the blue line being the demarcation line between Lebanon and Israel) to “end the cycle of violence”.
