YERUSHALAYIM (Hamodia Staff) -

New details emerged Wednesday about the reported Israeli strike on Hizbullah targets in Syria, reported Arutz Sheva.

According to the Saudi site Elaph, the Israeli Air Force struck a Hizbullah site near Damascus used for storage of advanced Russian anti-tank missiles capable of piercing the armor of the premier Merkava Mark IV.

According to the report, cited by Arutz Sheva, the IAF strike on Monday night at the foot of Mount Qasioun overlooking Damascus consisted of seven missiles that hit a site adjacent to the elite Fourth Armored Division of the Syrian army.

On Tuesday, Al-Souria Net — a pro-opposition media outlet in Syria — reported that eight Hizbullah terrorists and five Syrian soldiers were killed in the strike, which also injured “dozens.”

The Al-Souria Net report had said that the IAF carried out airstrikes Monday night on positions of the Syrian regime and Hizbullah in the area of the Qualamoun mountains on the Syria-Lebanon border; there was no mention of anti-tank missiles.
