Hezbollah Commander Killed In Lebanon, Claims Israel

(MENAFN- IANS) Beirut/Tel Aviv, May 23 (IANS/DPA) Israel said on Thursday it had killed a commander of the pro-Iranian Hezbollah militia in southern Lebanon.

Hezbollah confirmed the death but did not specify the man's rank.

The Lebanese National News Agency (NNA) reported that three children going to school were also injured in the attack near the market town of Nabatieh.

Hezbollah said that it had fired "dozens of rockets" at Israeli targets in northern Israel in retaliation.

The exchanges of fire have caused severe destruction in towns on both sides of the border. Around 150,000 people were evacuated or have left the combat zone.
