Hezbollah operatives reported killed in a strike on the Al-Bukamal Syria-Iraq border area
They Syrian Defense Ministry accused Israel of conducting strikes on Aleppo as well. In a statement the ministry said the attack came from the sea, west of the port city of Latakia. Warehouses storing Iranian armaments destined for Lebanon, had been hit.
Israeli officials say that even if Iran is not directly involved in the fighting it cannot be relieved of the responsibility for the uptick in violence. Some of the increased IDF operations in Lebanon are not only a response to Hezbollah fire but an effort to destroy some of its infrastructure that poses a direct threat to communities in the north and to move the terror group away from the frontier.
