TEL AVIV – The Iran-backed Hezbollah terrorist organization said Israeli Air Force warplanes on Thursday attacked a convoy of four trucks transporting weapons north of Damascus,  according to a report in the Lebanese website Mulhak.

Asked by Breitbart Jerusalem for a response, the Israel Defense Forces had no comment on the issue in keeping with an IDF policy of silence regarding reports of airstrikes outside of Israel.

The Times of Israel adds:

Syrian opposition websites said that the IAF “the Israeli air force carried out a number of strikes against Hezbollah positions close to the Syria-Lebanon border,” Israel National News reported.

“According to reports from the field, the air strike was carried out as a Hezbollah convoy departed from the area, apparently [further] into Lebanon,” INN quoted the opposition as saying.

There have been reports the past few years of Israeli strikes in Syria. Israel has vowed to keep any game-changing weapons from reaching the hands of terrorist groups based in Syria, especially Hezbollah.
