​The air raid is said to have taken place late Saturday. According to other reports, the attack was launched by an unnamed terrorist group.

​Local media outlets say that the airstrike left an unspecified number of civilians killed.

​Kuntar, a Lebanese Druze, spent nearly three decades in an Israeli prison following a PLF attack, which claimed the lives of four Israelis, including a four-year-old girl. The militant leader was released in 2008 as part of an Israeli-Hezbollah prisoner exchange.

Israel has not confirmed or denied its involvement in the attack but welcomed Kuntar’s killing.
