Report: Israel Strikes Syrian Military bases, Hezbollah Targets near Syria-Lebanon Border

The Israeli Air Force attacked Syrian army bases where Hezbollah stored long-range missiles late Friday night, according to an Al Jazeera report.

According to the report, the airstrikes targeted the bases of the 155th and 65th strategic missile brigades, stationed in Kalamoon, near the Syria-Lebanon border. Residents of nearby cities Yabroud and Qarah reported hearing explosions.

Former Syrian opposition leader Hadi al-Bahra tweeted that there were reports of attacks on the 92nd battalion, in addition to the attacks on the 155th and 65th brigades. Al-Bahra also tweeted that the 155th brigade is responsible for launching Scud and Scud-B missiles.

Syrian opposition activist Abu al-Hada al-Hemsi wrote on his Facebook page that “loud explosions were heard in the al-Qutayfah area near Kalamoon, explosions from the 92nd Battalion’s warehouses. By the nature of the blasts, it’s clear that these were Israeli planes.”

According to an Al Arabiya report, Friday night’s strikes were preceded by another attack on Wednesday, targeting a Hezbollah convoy carrying weapons. According to the report, at least one person was killed in that attack.
