Israel Launches Missiles On Southern Syria Amid Reports Hezbollah Entrenched Along Golan Border

Just days after the Friday meeting between Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Russian President Vladimir Putin in Sochi, Israel has once again launched major strikes on southern Syria, which reportedly struck Hezbollah-linked targets near the border between the two countries.

Damascus says it has a right to respond after the Monday morning attack, describing in a foreign ministry statement: "The Israeli forces this morning showed another aggression in the southern region. This is taking place as part of a series of aggression against Syria's sovereignty."

Syrian media confirmed multiple Israeli missile strikes on Madinat al-Baath on the Syrian side of the Golan border - an attack which was preceded by Israeli forces dropping leaflets over the area warning people there not to cooperate with Hezbollah, the Lebanese Shia group backed by Iran.

Israeli media is reporting that the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) used helicopters in the attack:

The three sites were all reportedly connected to Hezbollah’s so-called Golan File, its efforts to establish a front along the Golan border from which it can carry out attacks against Israel.

According to Syrian media, two of the sites were observation posts used by the Lebanese terror group, while the third target was a site just next to a Syrian military facility that Israel has long claimed was working with Hezbollah, the offices of Cpt. Bashar al-Hussein, commander of a reconnaissance company in the Syrian army’s 90th Brigade.
