The Israeli Air Force bombed a military post belonging to a Palestinian terrorist group based in Lebanon in the early hours of Monday morning, Arab media reported.
According to the reports, the strike targeted a base in the Bekaa Valley in eastern Lebanon, near the country’s border with Syria, which is manned by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command, a terrorist group affiliated with Hezbollah.
An Israeli military official said the IDF “does not comment on foreign media reports.”
The strikes came a day after the IDF foiled an Iranian plot to launch a drone attack against Israel, from Syria.
Lebanese media reported Sunday that two drones, which the Lebanese army and the Iran-backed Hezbollah said were Israeli, crashed into a Hezbollah building in a southern suburb of Beirut.
An Israeli defense source told Israel Hayom Monday that if the IAF did, in fact, strike the base, it would be to prevent retaliation by Hezbollah over Sunday’s operation.
Lebanese media quoted security sources as saying there were no injuries in the attack, but other Arab media reports gave conflicting numbers of casualties.
An official from the Lebanese town of Qusaya, which houses the base, said three airstrikes hit the area, causing only material damage.
Lebanese newspaper An-Nahar said anti-aircraft fire was launched from the position.
“Drones targeted one of our sites with three small rockets. There were no casualties, only material damage,” Abu Muhammad told An-Nahar.
