The IDF says it carried out a strike against a Syrian Army position in southern Syria, near Israel’s border, which was identified as being used by Lebanon’s Hezbollah.

The IDF says it has intelligence indicating Hezbollah operatives used the Syrian Army site.

“The IDF holds the Syrian regime accountable for all activities which take place within its territory and will not allow for any attempted actions which could lead to the entrenchment of Hezbollah on the Syrian front,” the military says in a statement.

Meanwhile, strikes were also carried out against Hezbollah observation posts and other infrastructure in southern Lebanon in the past few hours, the IDF says.

Areas near Dhayra and Tayr Harfa in southern Lebanon were also shelled with artillery to “remove threats,” according to the military.
