They have killed 52 people on the Lebanese side, including four civilians, 39 Hezbollah fighters and 9 organizations allied with it, according to an AFP tally. Yesterday Wednesday, Hezbollah announced the deaths of two more of its members.

Four people have been killed on the Israeli side of the border.

Concerns that the Israel/Hamas war will spread to Syria and above all with Hezbollah in Lebanon are becoming increasingly intense.

Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip, for its part yesterday released a new death toll, citing more than 6,500 dead, also mostly civilians, after relentless Israeli retaliatory shelling began in the coastal enclave.
