The information display screens at Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport, which typically post passenger departure and arrival information, were hacked on Sunday and showed an anti-Hezbollah message instead.

“In the name of God and the people, Rafik Hariri airport is not the airport of Hezbollah and Iran. Oh, Hassan Nasrallah, you will not find a supporter if Lebanon is plunged into war. You bear your responsibility and its consequences, Hezbollah. We will not fight on behalf of anyone. You bombed our port and now you want to bomb our airport because of the introduction of weapons. Let the airport be freed from the grip of the state,” the message read.

The airport's display screens were allegedly hacked by domestic anti-Hezbollah groups 'Soldiers of God' and a little-known group that calls itself, 'The One Who Spoke.'

Soldiers of God, a Christian group, reportedly denied that it had been involved, whereas the other group shared photos of the screens on its social media channels, according to a report by ABC News.

The hacking incident came as the Iranian proxy terrorist organization Hezbollah continued to ramp up its attacks on the Jewish state, firing a barrage of some 40 rockets and missiles from Lebanon at the Israeli Air Force radar base located on Mount Meron, on Saturday morning. The Air Base suffered some damage but is being repaired.

Hezbollah fired the barrage in what it called an “initial response” to the assassination of Hamas leader Saleh al-Arouri in Hezbollah’s stronghold in the Dahiyeh neighborhood in the Lebanese capital of Beirut last week.

“We consider the assassination of Arouri and his companions in Beirut a serious act of aggression against Lebanon and the Lebanese people, including the security of Lebanon, its sovereignty and the resistance movement. We declare that this crime will not go unpunished and that the hands of the resistance are on the trigger and its forces are on high alert,” Hezbollah said in an official statement.

On Monday, Lebanese sources said that a senior commander in Hezbollah’s elite Radwan Forces was killed in an apparent Israeli strike. The sources said that the elimination of Wissam al-Tawil, the deputy head of a unit within the Radwan Forces, is a “painful” blow for the terror group.

According to the sources, al-Tawil and another Hezbollah terrorist were killed when their car was hit in a strike on the Lebanese village of Majdal Selm.

“This is a very painful strike,” one of the security sources told Reuters. Another added: “Things will flare up now.”

Al-Tawil, also known as Jawad, reportedly played a central role in Hezbollah’s operations in southern Lebanon and “had a leading role in managing Hezbollah’s operations in the south,” a security official told AFP on condition of anonymity for security reasons. The official also said that Wissam al-Tawil “was killed in an Israeli raid targeting his car in the south.”
