BEIRUT, February 15. /TASS/. At least 13 civilians were killed in the Israeli air force’s strikes on south Lebanon, a source in the local office of the Lebanese Red Cross told TASS.

Earlier, the Janoubia news portal said that a five-year-old boy was pulled from the rubble alive.

In addition to the Nabatieh tragedy, five people were killed by Israeli strikes on Aadchit and al-Sawana.

Lebanon’s Hezbollah miltia said on its Telegram channel that three of its members, fighting in support of the Palestinian resistance in the Gaza Strip, have been killed.
