Israel Air Force destroys 7 Hezbollah weapons caches on Syria-Lebanon border
Arab media claims Israeli Air Force strike seven targets near Qalamoun Mountains • Reports vary as to whether targets were weapon stockpiles or arms convoy • Israel reportedly warns Hezbollah against retaliation over death or terrorist Samir Kuntar.
Syrian and Lebanese media reported Saturday that the Israeli Air Force struck Hezbollah positions north of the Qalamoun Mountains on the Syria-Lebanon border. Hezbollah denied the reports, and the Israeli defense establishment had no comment on them.
Arab media outlets said seven sites were targeted, and that considerable damage was noted in all of them. Some reports said the targets were Hezbollah weapon stockpiles, while others said the targets also included convoys traveling from Syria to Lebanon, believed to be en route to deliver long-range missiles to Hezbollah.
Reports of potential casualties in the alleged strikes were ambiguous.
Earlier Saturday the military informed the residents of the communities adjacent to the northern border that “sounds of explosions may be heard in the Upper Galilee area. Please be advised that these are scheduled, controlled detonation, and not a security incident.”
