Israel reportedly carried out at least three airstrikes in Syria over the past two days, and on Sunday its defense minister warned Iran to stop arming Hezbollah, the Lebanese Shi’ite terrorist group that has long been Tehran’s proxy in its fight against Israel.
Israeli officials commented formally on only one of three reported strikes – an attack late Sunday targeting what the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) said was “a group of armed terrorists” planting explosives in Israeli territory along the Israeli-Syria border.
“Any attempt to harm our soldiers or civilians will be met with a determined response like the IDF operation from tonight, which thwarted an attempted attack,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said in a statement. “I wish to praise the alertness of our soldiers, who acted quickly and precisely.”
The the other two attacks, presumed to have been carried out by Israeli jets, reportedly happened on Saturday and early Monday, in an area northeast of Damascus, and according to unconfirmed Arab media accounts, those attacks targeted Hezbollah and allied Assad regime forces.
