Pro-opposition al-Mustaqbal news outlet from Lebanon have reported that four Israeli airstrikes have targeted Hezbollah positions at the town of Flita, Syria. This is in the Qalamoun mountains that is mostly controlled by Hezbollah and its allies.

There have been reports of Hezbollah and Syrian Arab Army injuries, but the total amount cannot be verified yet.

Israel, Damascus and Hezbollah are yet to make a statement to confirm these reports.

Israelis on the border regions have said that there was a high amount of air activity.

These Israeli airstrikes usually target Hezbollah arm shipments and storage’s. The Al-Nusra Front and other terrorist groups in the region are usually completely untouched by Israel airstrikes.

Hopefully Russia will demand a stop to these illegal strikes. If not, the Israelis will undoubtedly continue to do them and probably do them in ways causing greater Hezebollah deaths.

An article in Jerusalem Post seems to confirm that indeed Israel did strike Hezbollah in multiple places, taking a number of their lives.
