Two journalists and one civilian were killed on Tuesday morning in Israeli attacks on the village of Tayr Harfa in southern Lebanon, local media reported.
Farah Omar, a reporter working for local TV channel Al-Mayadeen, and Rabih Al-Maamari, a photographer working for the same channel, were covering the events in southern Lebanon when two Israeli drones hit them, killing both of them and a civilian named Hussein Akil, Lebanese TV channel Al-Manar reported.
Meanwhile, 80-year-old Laeqa Sarhan was killed and her granddaughter injured after their house in the southern village of Kafr Kila was hit by Israeli artillery fire.
Israel intensified its attacks on the Lebanese border area on Tuesday, striking the villages of Kfarchouba and Aita al-Shaab, and the town of Al-Jebin with air raids, according to Al-Manar.
The Lebanon-Israel border witnessed increased tension for over six weeks after Lebanese armed group Hezbollah fired dozens of rockets toward Shebaa Farms on Oct. 8 in support of the Hamas attacks on Israel the previous day, prompting the Israeli forces to respond by firing heavy artillery toward several areas in southeastern Lebanon.
