“A Lebanese vehicle driver was killed, and three students were injured in an Israeli drone bombing of a civilian vehicle on the Kafr Dajjal-Shokin road, in the Nabatieh Governorate, south of Lebanon,” the agency said.

The vehicle was up in flames, and the wounded students were taken to the nearest hospital, according to Lebanese media outlets.

The missile hit the vehicle at the same time a bus full of students heading to school was passing close to the car, which left three students injured.

Hezbollah and Israeli forces have been trading near daily cross-border fire since the war on Gaza began in October.

The fighting has killed at least 425 people in Lebanon, mostly fighters but also including 82 civilians, according to an AFP tally.

Israel says 14 soldiers and 11 civilians have been killed on its side of the border.
