Almost a week after terrorist Samir Kuntar was killed in an airstrike in Syria, and only several days after rockets were fired at northern Israel, Syrian media claimed that the Israeli Air Force targeted no less than seven Hezbollah targets in the country's Qalamoun region late on Saturday night.

At the same time, Hezbollah denied that there were any explosions at its bases.

The IDF has not commented on the situation, but earlier in the evening, released a statement saying that "in the next few hours, explosions will be heard in the upper Galilee region. The explosions are routine, were planned ahead of time and are not connected to a security incident."
