Iran condemns deadly Israeli attack on journalists' vehicle in S Lebanon

Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kan'ani

Iran's Foreign Ministry has condemned an earlier attack by the Israeli regime against a vehicle carrying journalists in southern Lebanon that led to the death of one of them.

Spokesman Nasser Kan'ani issued the condemnation on Friday, hours after the Israeli artillery attack that targeted the vehicle in the Lebanese village of Alma al-Shaab.

The official condoled with and expressed sympathy towards the survivors as well as the international community of journalists.

Qatar's Al Jazeera television network identified the fatality as a reporter with Lebanon's official National News Agency (NNA).

Five others were also injured in the attack, including an Al Jazeera photographer. Last year, an Israeli sniper gunned down Shireen Abu Akleh, targeting the veteran Al Jazeera journalist with a live armor-piercing bullet.

This is not the first time that the Israeli regime has targeted the Lebanese territory since Saturday when it launched its ongoing hugely deadly war against the Gaza Strip.

On Tuesday, the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement said it had struck two Israeli military posts in the northern part of the occupied territories in response to the regime’s earlier aggression against South Lebanon, which had left three of the group's fighters dead.
