Report: IAF bombed targets in Syria

Did Israel attack Syrian and Hezbollah targets again? Arab news sources are reporting that the IAF carried out several strikes against weapons intended for Hezbollah. 

Arab media are reporting that Israel Air Force (IAF) aircraft attacked two targets near Damascus, inside Syria, on Tuesday night.

The targets were reportedly an arms cache inside a Syrian military post, and a weapons convoy traveling on the road to make a deliver the Hezbollah terror organization.

The reports state that no one was injured in the two attacks.

Neither Israeli nor Syrian or Hezbollah officials have confirmed the reports.

Similar reports of IAF strikes inside Syria have emerged in the past.

Hezbollah has been working hard to arm itself with advanced weapons. Israel has stated repeatedly that it will not allow the terror organization to acquire advanced weaponry, which would threaten the country and compromise the IDF’s capability to maneuver in Lebanon in the event of another war.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has confirmed in the past that Israel carried out several attacks against Hezbollah to prevent the group from obtaining advanced weapons.

Israeli leaders have warned that Hezbollah, backed by Iran, could drag the region into another round of hostilities.

The IDF has stated that its Home Front Command was preparing for a scenario of hundreds of civilian casualties and 1,000-1,500 rockets raining daily on Israeli population centers in an eventual conflict with the Hezbollah terror organization.
