Israeli air force jets reportedly struck suspected Hezbollah and Syrian army weapons caches in Syria before dawn on Monday, days after another alleged Israeli strike, according to the pan-Arab television station Al Jazeera.
The attack reportedly took place in the al-Qalamoun region just north of Damascus.
The report indicated that the attack did result in deaths and injuries, though the exact number was not known.
According to the Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya television network, the target of the strike was a military post manned by soldiers from the 155th Brigade of the Syrian armed forces – the outfit that is believed to have been involved in the delivery of Scud missiles to Hezbollah.
The reported attack comes hours after the IAF struck and killed four terrorists who crossed into Israel from Syria and planted explosives near an abandoned IDF post on Sunday night.
