There are reports that the attack was aimed at Muhammad Abdel Rasoul Alluwa, the man in charge of Hezbollah's Maroun al-Ras region. Several cities in southern Lebanon were also hit by Israeli airstrikes on Monday, according to Agence France-Presse and the official Lebanese News Agency.

On Saturday, Israel attacked a vehicle in the town of Jadra, about 40 kilometers from the Israel-Lebanon border, the second time outside the southern border region since tensions began to escalate amid the war in Gaza.

A Lebanese security source told Agence France-Presse on Saturday that the attack targeted Hamas leader Basil Saleh, who is in charge of a West Bank recruitment unit, but that he survived.

The strike killed two people, one of whom was a civilian.
