France deplores Israeli strike on Lebanese army

The French Foreign Ministry deplored on Wednesday the Israeli attack that resulted in the death of the first Lebanese soldier since the start of the almost daily exchange of gunfire on the common border subsequent to the outbreak of hostilities between Israel and Hamas.

"France is gravely concerned by the ongoing clashes on the border between Lebanon and Israel. France condemns the Israeli strike which cost the life of a member of the Lebanese armed forces, and sends its sincere condolences to the victim's relatives," the ministry posted on social media X.

The Israeli army expressed regret over the incident and claimed that "the Lebanese Armed Forces were not the target of the strike," but a "launch area and observation point of ​​the Hezbollah terrorist organization."
