(UPDATE: Foxnews may not have their story straight. Their front page says an airstrike, not a shootout, killed Abu Jaffar:

airstrike in Southern Lebanon kills Abu Jaffar, one of terrorist group’s top three commanders.

Plus, the Jerusalem Post reports that

the IDF confirmed on Tuesday that a high-ranking Hizbullah leader called Al-Jafar had been killed in an IAF air strike in Lebanon. The IDF would not reveal the official’s exact position but said that he was high up in the organization’s hierarchy and was one of the Hizbullah’s regional commanders.

Stay tuned.)

Foxnews is reporting that Israeli forces have killed a senior Hezbollah leader.

Also on Tuesday, Israeli Defense Forces said it killed a senior Hezbollah leader during a firefight in south Lebanon.
