Israel strikes Hezbollah arms cache

Israel struck a Hezbollah weapons cache near the Damascus International Airport in the capital of Syria early on Friday local time, according to local reports.

The two rockets slammed down near the airport, and were likely fired from Israeli warplanes outside of Syrian territory.

Israel, as per usual, did not release more details as they don’t comment on recent military actions, however, the country has claimed over 100 strikes on Hezbollah itself and Syrian convoys shipping weapons to the Iranian-backed militant group since 2012.

Israel fought a war with Hezbollah in 2006, and is against any support of their group.

President Bashar al-Assad’s administration reported an Israeli strike on a Syrian military base in the northwestern Hama province last month.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also confirmed Friday’s attack.
