Report: Israel strikes Hezbollah convoy in Syria

Syrian media reported early Monday morning that Israel had struck Hezbollah targets on the Syrian-Lebanese border.

The unconfirmed reports stated that Israel struck a Hezbollah convoy.

On Sunday, an Israeli drone reportedly struck a vehicle in the Quneitra countryside, killing the driver, Yasser al-Sayed, who was a commander in Syria’s air defense unit, according to Channel 2.

Hours earlier, Syrian media reported that regime forces had “repelled” an Israeli reconnaissance drone near the town of Khan Arnaba, close to where Friday morning’s Israel Air Force strike allegedly occurred. The air force’s Arrow anti-aircraft missile defense system intercepted a Syrian SA-5 missile fired at Israeli jets on Friday night. The jets had already returned to Israeli airspace when they were attacked, after striking targets in Syria.

Maariv Online and Anna Ahronheim contributed to this report.
