Beirut: Israel carried out at least three airstrikes targeting the Lebanese-Syria border area on Sunday.
“Three Israeli air strikes target the Lebanese-Syria border east of Zahle,” An-Nahar said.
The strikes came a day after two drones, which the Lebanese army and the Iran-backed Hezbollah group said were Israeli, crashed in the Hezbollah-dominated southern suburbs of Beirut, with one exploding.
An official from the Palestinian position in the Lebanese town of Qusaya said three air strikes hit it, causing only material damage. An-Nahar said anti-aircraft fire was launched from the position.
Israel is believed to have carried out hundreds of strikes in Syria since civil war broke out there in 2011, to try to prevent Iran gaining a foothold.
