Report: IDF hit Hezbollah outposts in Lebanon

Terror group's affiliated network Al Mayadeen denies reports in Al Arabiya alleging that the Israeli military had launched strikes on several outposts in the Lebanese Beqaa Valley region of Baalbek adjacent to the Syrian border.

Arab media reported Sunday evening that Israel has attacked Hezbollah outposts in the Lebanese Beqaa Valley region of Baalbek adjacent to the Syrian border.



The Al Arabiya network reports were denied by the Hezbollah-affiliated Al Mayadeen network.


The terror-affiliated network cited what was described as a trustworthy source to prove that there was no basis for the reports of an Israeli attack.

Hezbollah’s military public relations site also insisted that the reports were without foundation and that no attacks were launched either on Lebanese or Syrian soil.


The reports come days after Israel confirmed that it was responsible for the 2007 destruction of a Syrian nuclear reactor.


Earlier in Sunday, head of the IDF's Military Intelligence Directorate (MID) Maj.-Gen. Herzi Halevi provided his first public comment on the split with former Mossad head Tamir Pardo, who claimed that the late discovery of the Syrian nuclear reactor was an abject intelligence failure, saying it was "improper to present success as failure."


"MID has a strategy of partnerships, and we don't have the privilege of working alone. Even after removing the blackout, I'm proud MID is at an all-time flourish—with Israel's citizens as benefactors," Halevi said, speaking Sunday afternoon in a conference organized by Ynet and Yedioth Ahronoth to celebrate 70 years of Israeli success.
