Israeli Airstrikes Hit Targets Near Syria, Lebanese Media Reports

Israeli airstrikes attacked targets in eastern Lebanon, the Lebanese media reported, but the claims were denied by Hezbollah.

Citing Lebanese security officials, the reports on Tuesday said that Israeli Air Force planes attacked Hezbollah targets near the city of Brital, on the Syrian border. Several Lebanese civilians were injured in the attack, according to the Daily Star, a Lebanese daily newspaper.

The Israel Defense Forces neither confirmed nor denied the reports, saying it does not comment on foreign media reports.

The attacks may have been spillover from the civil war in Syria, according to reports.

Israel in the past reportedly has attacked shipments of arms headed for Hezbollah.

The reports came amid a nationwide preparedness drill in Israel simulating coordinated attacks from Gaza, Syria and Lebanon.
