Israel raid hits missile depot in Syria
An overnight Israeli raid has hit a missile depot in the strategic western Syrian region of al-Qalamoun
An overnight Israeli raid has hit a missile depot in the strategic western Syrian region of al-Qalamoun, Al Arabiya News’ sister channel Al Hadath reported Thursday.
Qalamoun is located near the region bordering Lebanon.
Sources also told Al Hadath that two Israeli raids had on Wednesday targeted a convoy carrying arms belonging to Lebanese Shiite militant group Hezbollah.
Hezbollah has long been a key ally to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government.
This is not the first time Israel targets Hezbollah whether in Syria or in Lebanon.
In January, an Israeli raid killed Hezbollah’s commander of the Syrian Golan sector. Also, Israeli warplanes hit weapons warehouse near Damascus last December.
