The report also claimed that the IDF struck from within Lebanon so as not to be blocked by the Russian defense systems operating in the area.

Syrian media reports suggest that the attack was aimed at Hezbollah weapons. Syrian witnesses have attested to hearing “loud explosion sounds” in the early morning hours.

The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit declined to comment on the reports.

The alleged attack comes after a week during which Hezbollah’s leader Hassan Nasrallah made several aggressive statements in an appearance on Iranian television as well as in interviews with the Lebanese media.

The terror organization’s leader threatened to attack Israel in the near future, saying that “Hezbollah will have no red lines in the next war with Israel,” and also warned Israel from entering into a conflict with Hezbollah: “Israel should think a million times before it goes to war with Lebanon.”
