Report: IAF Strikes Hezbollah, Syrian Missile Targets

“Blessed be the Lord, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle.” (Psalm 144:1)

Israel has reportedly struck several Hezbollah and Syrian targets in a series of air strikes in the Kalamun area, located near the Syrian and Lebanese border.

The first IAF airstrike is believed to have taken place on Wednesday, the Saudi al-Arabiya news outlet reported. The strike is said to have targeted two army missile depots belonging to the Syrian army, housing Scud missiles.

A report on Saturday from al-Jazeera said the Syrian targets were divisions 155, 192 and 65 of the Syrian army, which is responsible for “strategic weapons” of the Assad regime.

A second airstrike is also believed to have been carried out on Friday, targeting trucks carrying surface-to-air missiles.

There has been no official response from the Syrian government or Hezbollah on the airstrikes.

Israel has believed to have targeted the area in the past when a shipment of advanced weaponry was being delivered to Hezbollah in Lebanon by Iran.

In January, airstrikes that have been credited to Israel targeted a convoy on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights that killed a top Hezbollah commander, Iranian general and 10 other officials.

The Lebanese-based terror group responded to the airstrikes with a cross-border attack that killed two IDF soldiers.

The IDF said it would not comment on the foreign media reports.
