The assassination of the second-highest ranking pro-Israeli militia leader Sunday has dealt a severe blow to Israel's allies in occupied South Lebanon.

Lebanese security officials said Col. Akl Hashem of the South Lebanon Army militia was working in an orchard near his house in Dibel village when a bomb went off, killing him instantly. Israel promised retaliation, and its military aircraft began nighttime raids.
