One Killed on Motorcycle by Airstrike, Sohmor, Lebanon

At approximately 0843 EST, initial reports indicated that an airstrike had targeted a motorcycle in Sohmor, Lebanon. By 0900 EST, local sources confirmed that a single male was killed in the explosion.

As of this publication, Lebanon or Israel has not made official government statements. Hezbollah has also not commented on the strike. However, in incidents involving single riders on motorcycles, these strikes often are persona strikes targeting cell members, especially key leaders.

We will update this post as more information emerges concerning the party responsible for the strike and the casualty’s identity.

This incident is backdropped by the ongoing escalation between Israel and Hezbollah, with several IDF sources telling Israeli media last night that additional troops had been transferred to Northern Israel from the Gaza Strip.
