One Indian has died in Israeli bombardment on Lebanon, official sources said on Friday. The deceased has been identified as Devesh Kumar Swain of Orissa, they said.
Swain had gone missing along with three persons when a glass factory they were working in got hit by Israeli bombing three days ago, the sources said.
The three others were later found injured in a hospital. One of them Kalpanath Singh Yadav, who had received minor injuries, was evacuated on Thursday.
Two other wounded SK Virdi of Bangalore and Dilip Kumar Manna of West Bengal are still hospitalised and are likely to be discharged in about three days, they said.
The four were workers of Maliban glass factory based in Beca.
The factory has been shut down temporarily a week ago in view of the war-like situation and the workers were in the process of evacuating when the incident took place.
