Member of the organization's Central Committee, Bader Ahmad Jibril, said that Israeli occupation fighter jets launched an air raid targeting a site of the PFLP-GC.

He added that, in addition to the deaths, there were others injured, in addition to the considerable material losses at the site.

Media reports suggest the Israeli raid was on Qosya', one of the Lebanese villages in the Zahle district, where a vehicle belonging to the PFLP-GC was targeted.

Another PFLP-GC official, the Lebanon-based Abu Wael Issam, told the AP that his group will retaliate “at the suitable time.” He added that the strike will not deter his group from “escalating the fight against the Israeli enemy.”

There was no immediate comment from Israel.
