BEIRUT (Reuters)—Five members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command militant group were killed in an overnight explosion in Lebanon, near the border with neighboring Syria, two Lebanese security sources and one Palestinian security source told Reuters on Wednesday.

The Israeli military told Reuters it does not comment on reports in foreign media.

(This story has been corrected to change the name of the group to PFLP-General Command, which operates separately from PFLP, in paragraph 1)
