Israel allegedly strikes Hezbollah missile depot in Syria

The Israel Air Force has reportedly conducted an air strike last night against a military installation in Syria, prompting the Assad regime to retaliate by launching surface-to-air missiles toward the Israeli fighter-jets. The jets reportedly evaded the anti-aircraft missiles, disappearing above Lebanese skies. Syrian sources told TV7 that the target was a missile manufacturing installation belonging to the Iranian-backed Hezbollah, near the city of Homs, yet TV7 could not confirm whether the installation truly belonged to the Lebanese militia or to the Syrian military. While the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit declined to comment on the incident, Israeli intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz said in an interview to Israel’s Army Radio this morning that while he cannot confirm or deny the reports about the alleged Israeli attack in Syria, “Israel’s position is clear: Smuggling arms to Hezbollah is a red line in (Jerusalem’s) eyes.”
