The Magen David Adom ambulance service said it pronounced the death of a 60-year-old man at Fassuta, about 3 kilometers (1.5 miles) from Matat, a village abutting the Lebanese border which the Israeli military had reported coming under a missile attack.

The cross-border exchanges of fire began after Hamas’s assault on Israel on October 7, which killed some 1,200 people, mostly civilians, and saw about 240 taken hostage, according to Israeli officials.

In response, Israel vowed to eliminate the militant group and unleashed an air and ground campaign that authorities in Hamas-run Gaza say has killed more than 17,177 people, also mostly civilians.
