BEIRUT: Israel struck Hezbollah posts near Syria’s Quneitra province, a media report said on Tuesday.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an opposition war monitor, said the missiles struck areas where Iran-backed fighters are based near Quneitra province, Israel’s Haaretz media reported.
Explosions in the Syrian village of Hader could be heard on videos circulated on social media.
“Videos posted on social media showing a missile or rocket exploding in the air were said to be taken from the Israeli side of the border, in the Golan Heights,” Haaretz added.
However, Israeli forces haven’t commented on the incident yet.
Syrian state media, meanwhile, reported that Israel carried out a missile attack on southern Syria late on Tuesday, targeting an unspecified military position.
The state TV report did not specify if there were any casualties. It said two missiles were fired toward the military position near the southern town of Quneitra, on the edge of Syria’s Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
Israel has launched hundreds of strikes against Iran-linked military targets in war-ravaged Syria over the years but rarely acknowledges or discusses such operations.
Israel views Iranian entrenchment on its northern frontier as a red line, and it has repeatedly struck Iran-linked facilities and weapons convoys destined for Lebanon’s militant Hezbollah group.
