One Thai national was killed and seven more wounded by an anti-tank guided missile fired from southern Lebanon at an orchard near Margaliot in northern Israel on Monday.

The Hezbollah attack targeted a group of foreign workers in an orchard outside of the community, Israeli media reported.

In addition to the worker who was killed, seven wounded people were evacuated by helicopters to nearby hospitals, including two in serious condition, four with moderate injuries and one reportedly in good condition, Israel's Magen David Adom rescue services stated.

All of the wounded suffered from shrapnel injuries caused by the missile that exploded. The IDF retaliated by shelling the launch area with artillery, Israeli media reported.

The deadly attack came amid continued fire exchanges between Hezbollah forces and Israeli troops during the last several days.

On Sunday, Israeli news outlets referenced a report from the Syrian news source, Voice of the Capital. According to this report, the grandson of Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah was reportedly among the casualties in an Israeli airstrike that targeted and eliminated three terrorists the previous Friday.

Abbas Ahmed Halil was reportedly one of the three operatives belonging to the Iranian “Imam Hussein Division,” a militia normally based in Syria that had been helping Hezbollah in recent days. According to the IDF, the squad had launched a rocket attack against Israel.

Neither Hezbollah nor Israeli officials commented on the reports.

Before Monday’s deadly attack by Hezbollah, the group claimed that it had beaten back Israeli troops who twice attempted to infiltrate Lebanese territory the night before.

Hezbollah claimed to have used anti-tank missiles and mortars to repel the Israeli attacks. In addition, the group claimed responsibility for the mortar fire in the area of Zar’it on Sunday night.

Siren alerts were not activated in Israel and the Israeli army did not comment.

The day before, Hezbollah attacked Israeli targets in the areas of Metula, Ghajar and Malkiya, the IDF reported. In response, Israeli forces attacked Hezbollah military targets in the areas of Ayta al-Sha’ab and Kafr Kila in southern Lebanon.
