According to the IDF, Baz served as a “commander of the coastal sector” and “was involved in the promotion and planning of launching rockets and anti-tank missiles towards the State of Israel from the coastal area in Lebanon.”

Baz’s death was confirmed by Hezbollah in a release.

Muhammad Hossein Matzafa Shouri:

The IDF announced that Hezbollah Commander Muhammad Hossein Matzafa Shouri was killed during an airstrike against his vehicle in the Kfar Donin area of southern Lebanon.

According to the IDF, Shouri was Radwan Unit commander “of the rocket and missile unit of the western sector” and “was responsible for the planning and execution of many rocket firing plans towards the Israeli rear.”

“As part of his position, he was involved in the promotion and planning of rocket and missile launches towards the State of Israel from the area of ??the central and western sector in Lebanon,” the IDF added.

Shouri, along with Radwan Unit member Ibrahim Mahmoud Fadlallah, were confirmed killed in a Hezbollah release.
