On Sunday morning, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) fired a missile into Syria that struck Hezbollah (Party of God) positions at Al-Amil Farms (Mazra’ Al-Amil) in the city of Al-Quneitra, killing 9 members of the latter, including the son of the later Hezbollah commander, “Imad Moughaniyyeh”, and 4 prominent members of the organization.

According to eyewitness reports, an IDF missile scored a direct hit on the Hezbollah contigent assisting the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and National Defense Forces (NDF) combatting the Al-Qaeda linked “Al-Nusra Front” (Jabhat Al-Nusra) in the large area of farmland that surrounds the provincial capital of the Al-Quneitra Governorate in western Syria.

The IDF managed to avoid hitting any Al-Nusra Front or loyalist forces positions, leading some sources to believe that this attack had been planned for a long period of time. Israel’s volatile history with the Lebanese political and military group, “Hezbollah”, has resulted in the former’s continued interference in the Syrian Conflict; this is the 2nd time in 3 months that Israel has struck loyalist forces inside Syria without any prior aggression from the latter.

Among the dead Hezbollah members killed at Al-Amil Farms were the following: Jihaad ‘Imad Moughaniyyeh, Al-Sayyid Mahdi Mohammad Nasser Al-Mousawi (“Sayyid Muslim”), Al-Sayyid ‘Ali Fouad Hassan (“Sayyid Ameer”), Al-Sayyid Hussein Hassan Hassan (“Abu Zahra”), Hussein ‘Ismaa’eel Al-Ishab, Mohammad ‘Issa, and Qaassem Soura. 2 others have not been identified yet.
