Israel assassinates Hezbollah commander Wissam al-Tawil with drone strike on his car in Lebanon

“This is a very painful strike,” a security sources said.

Another said, “things will flare up now.”

Al-Tawil was said to be behind a weekend strike on an Israeli military base.

A Lebanese security official revealed that the eliminated target had “a leading role in directing the operations in southern Lebanon.”

Israeli officials have now confirmed they were behind the strike on al-Tawil.

Israeli bombardment has killed more than 130 Hezbollah fighters in southern Lebanon since cross-border shelling began in the aftermath of Hamas’s October 7 attacks.

Another 19 have been killed in Syria.

Hezbollah’s secretary-general Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah warned Israel in two televised addresses last week not to launch a full-scale war on Lebanon.

“Whoever thinks of war with us – in one word, he will regret it,” Nasrallah said.

On Saturday, Hezbollah launched a barrage of rocket attacks into Israel in retaliation for the targeted killing of Hamas leader Saleh al-Arouri.

The Lebanese terror group said it had fired 62 rockets on an IDF base – one of the largest bombardment in recent months.

Hezbollah said the strike was “in the framework of the initial response to the assassination of the senior leader Saleh al-Arouri and his martyr brothers.”

Arouri was killed earlier this week in a surgical strike in Lebanon.

Only last week, another senior Hezbollah leader, Hussein Yazbek, was killed in an Israeli air strike which hit a building in Naqoura city.
