In the early hours of Sunday morning, Israel conducted an airstrike near the Syria-Lebanon border, targeting a civilian truck and resulting in the deaths of two individuals believed to be Hezbollah terrorists, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The Hezbollah terror group announced the deaths of two members killed “on the road to Jerusalem,” its term for operatives slain in Israeli strikes.

They were named as Hussein al-Dirani from Qsarnaba and Ahmed al-Afi from Brital, two towns in the Baalbek district, close to the Syrian border.

The incident occurred between Homs province and Rif Dimashq. Israel has carried out multiple airstrikes in Syrian territory amid the ongoing conflict with Hamas, targeting weapons depots of the Syrian Army in response to missile launches toward Israel.

Additionally, there are reports of Israeli strikes in Syria aimed at Hezbollah, with Iran allegedly coordinating the smuggling of weapons to the group in this region.
